About the Artist
Jim studied drawing and painting at Edinburgh College of Art, 1958-62 under William Gillies and John Houston.
Whilst teaching in London Jim became attracted to the ceramics on show at the Craftsmen Potters Shop, Marshal St and by the early 70s started up in business producing mainly domestic ware in the Japanese tradition, as introduced into this country by the Japanese potter Hamada and Bernard Leach.
Pots are produced in a gas kiln under reduction and it is in this way that particular glaze effects are achieved. A certain amount of improvisation is used in glaze application, which is a reflection of another lifelong interest of this artist, which is that of jazz playing.
Jim will also be exhibiting a selection of his popular oil paintings.
