Series curation: Wendy Lawrence


Having studied ceramics at degree and postgraduate level Simon has been a professional Potter and teacher for more than thirty years. He is a fellow of the CPA ( Craft Potters Association ) and member of SWP (South Wales Potters).

He set up Brook Street Pottery and Gallery in Hay-on-Wye making garden terracotta and exhibiting ceramics and managed the gallery for over twenty years.

Following a series of study trips and residences in Jingdezhen China Simon has now downsized his practice to focus on small-scale porcelain ceramics. He makes bottles cups, beakers and jars which are all hand thrown and glazed with multiple high fired glazes making each piece both functional and unique.

He has a beautiful new studio at his home in Dolau near Presteigne mid Wales where he has recently built an experimental low tech charcoal fired kiln.

The studio is open by appointment and during Art Trails in the region. Simon joined ‘The Haymakers’ cooperative in 2022. The group have a well established gallery in the centre of Hay-on-Wye exhibiting both members work and visiting artists.
