Jon Bull

All of Jon’s work is individual; hand crafted, thrown on the wheel, and each piece in itself totally unique. Although each piece is a vessel, it is not meant to perform a function. It is a piece of art created to evoke a sense of preciousness, grandeur and flamboyance.
His designs have many influences from classical ceramics and Greek vases, to chess pieces to various types of armour. Using these influences he has created modern forms that are machined, mechanical and precision engineered.
All of the work is wheel thrown, turned and assembled. Jon uses several different surface techniques including terra sigilata, smoke firing and stoneware glazes.
Jon graduated from UWIC with an Honours degree in Ceramics in 1999. He was then a production thrower at St Fagon’s Pottery. He lives and works in Cardiff and has exhibited widely.
