Shaun attended Middlesex University from 1994-98, formerly the well loved Hornsea School of Art. Whilst at University he was tutored by some well known figures in the field of Studio Pottery. Paul Astbury, Emmanuel Cooper and Mo Jupp (amongst others)- who all left their mark and installed a "can do" attitude towards his clay technique.

Since 1998- Shaun has slowly but steadily gained a solid reputation in his field for quirky, "one off" unique Raku forms, which include sculptural as well as more traditional handthrown objects. Influences are numerous- ranging from Modernist art and design- architecture and sculpture- to the ancient and archaic- and there is a deliberate cross over between the two.


Initially Shaun was commisioned by Selfridges and Co- which boosted his early progress. Since then he has attracted many private commissions and clients. Exhibitions have included the London Craft Potters' Association shop- Buckenham Galleries in Southwold, and in recent times he has displayed work farther afield, most recently in Rueil Malmaison, Paris and Osaka, Japan.

He has been shortlisted for the UJADF Art awards 2010 where he will be exhibiting a work at the ROA-Royal Opera Arcade Gallery in Pall Mall. He has also been selected as one of the "500 Raku" potters in a new book on the subject - to be published in Spring 2011. Read Less
