Today we are talking to our all time favourite potter and ‘Rad Dad’, Keith Brymer Jones. Now you’ve probably heard of Keith from his internet breaking appearance in BBC2’s Great Pottery Throwdown but have you seen his uber-cool homeware range? The answer to that question should be yes, however if it’s not, let us acquaint you with Keith and the KBJ range.
- Question: What is the Keith Brymer Jones potter process? Do you design before you create or do you prefer to let the clay do the talking?
Basically, it works like this… I get inspiration all over the place; buildings, people, and even landscapes. I then go straight to my studio and I work with the clay. I have worked with clay for so long now that the best way for me to work creatively is to form and shape the clay straight from my imagination. Another way of putting it is, the clay is my sketchbook!
