I am primarily a thrower working in porcelain. I make finely thrown bowls and bottles and have developed a repertoire of beautiful glazes to enhance the forms, usually in conjunction with gold/bronze banding. Sometimes rims are cut to give intriguing openings allowing the inner as well as the outer form to be seen at the same time.
Finely thrown porcelain bowls and bottles. Domesticware in terracotta with 2 finishes- a cool blue, and partially glazed honey with black and white striped slip areas.
Current Work Available from:
I fire in an electric kiln to around 1220 Celcius, and use a variety of glazes I have developed and tested for their beautiful and interesting effects and colours. I have bright turquoises, white with bright blue halos, strange mauvy-pinks etc.
Graduated from Loughborough College of Art & Design with First Honours in Ceramics in 1981. Awarded Crafts Council Setting-Up Grant. I have been a professional potter ever since, selling widely in UK and abroad via my website www.richardbaxter.com . I regularly get invited to go out to teach in schools, colleges and for community groups (eg mental health centre, hospice).
