Working with earthenware and stoneware clay, Kevin’s mugs, bowls, ramekins and jugs have a rustic, farmhouse appeal.
Kevin uses sgraffito (where he produces an outline drawing before firing) to decorate his simple, functional, well proportioned objects.
Born in 1949 in Gravesend, Kent, Kevin took up pottery at the age of 23, studying ‘Studio Pottery’ on a vocational course at Medway College of Art and Design, which he successfully completed in 1977.
Following this he trained for 4 years with studio potter Mike Goddard and finally set up his own workshop in Canterbury in 1982.
It wasn’t until 2000 that he built a 37 cubic foot soda kiln and began to make domestic ceramics. With his new kiln he produced a range of strong, functional soda and wood ash glazed domestic ware.
Kevin strives to produce well made, simple and functional pots that are affordable and appealing, not just to the knowledgeable, but to a wider range of the public, and has since gained widespread popularity, including us at the Mulberry Tree!
