Nick Membery


I make reduction fired stoneware and my primary concern has always been to make pots for everyday use.
I am influenced by usable vessels of any nature and by my time spent as an apprentice. For many years I was influenced by the making process itself.
Now after twenty years as a maker my intention is to make high quality kitchen and tableware which I consider to be a reaction against mass production and consumerism.
