John set up his studio 40 years ago in the Cotswolds with his wife Jude.
From his first exposure to studio pottery, he was immediately excited by the work of the late Bernard Leach and his lifelong friend the Japanese potter Shoji Hamada. It was the strength and quietness of their pots which most excited him about their work.
For the past few years, he has concentrated on a range of forms, to which he has applied live/celadon, ochre and shino glazes made up from wood ash and clay; ingredients which are both local to his studio. Pots are also soda-fired.
His work is all hand-thrown and is often altered while still soft on the wheel. John uses a long firing cycle, as this brings out the subtlety and depth in his glazes.
In this high speed, hi-tech age, his aim is to make uncomplicated, simple pots upon which the eye can easily rest.
