Steve Morton

My interest in ceramics was ignited at grammar school, using a simple kick wheel. A four year course at Birmingham College of Art followed in Three Dimensional Design with a first class honours degree in Interior design, a subject which I continued as a career, in practise specialising in commercial licensed leisure and hotel design for the next 30 years. Moving to Looe in 2010, and after many years away from clay, Plymouth College of Art refreshed my interest and technique in earthenware and reduction stoneware and I continue to develop and learn with every turn of the wheel. The influence of simple shapes, textures and colours of the sea and geology around the Cornish coast are a constant source of inspiration with the fire, unpredictability and excitement of Raku work now a major interest.
