Richard Baxter

ceramic

Richard Baxter makes finely thrown porcelain with glazes in distinctively bright, bold and beautiful colours. He favours forms with simple clean profiles reminiscent of mid-century modern Scandinavian ceramics, but retaining a sense of spontaneity. On each piece he varies the curves and applies the bands of bronze pigment to fit each form, so every pot is unique. Richard fires in electric kilns, he encourages variance and imperfection.
