John M Beusmans set up CARN POTTERY in an Old Cornish Chapel in the early 1970s. He was born in Hampshire and moved to Cornwall with his parents who ran a retail pottery shop. He studied throwing at Redruth Art College.
John's pottery is distinctive. His pieces vary tremendously in shape, size and nature, but are always instantly recognizable. All his work shows a strong fascination with shape - Inspired by the sea and coastline.
All work is slip-cast, and John usually makes several moulds from a master, each one incised with a different design. The colour is produced by applying copper oxide and copper mixed with cobalt with a mop. John, who works with one helper, fires his pots in an electric kiln at 1140°C.
There is a growing army of Carn collectors, and it is fortunate for them that the pottery is still producing. The mark is a simple rubber stamp giving the name or the name and address of the pottery.
