Steve Harrison is a ceramic artist whose pots are created both to be seen and used. He trained for seven years, concluding at the Royal College of Art in 1993. Steve won the Queensbury Hunt Tableware award in 1991 and the Acme Malls award for work in the Victoria and Albert Museum Ceramics Contemporaries exhibition in 1996. He received a Crafts Council award which enabled him to set up his workshop in Enfield. He has also been a visiting lecturer in ceramics at Camberwell, Kent & Middlesex Universities.

 

He draws his inspiration from the eighteenth century lathe-turned ceramics which he applies to his work on the wheel. This gives his forms a unique aesthetic quality in the world of modern ceramics. On his pottery wall he displays the reminder from William Leatherby that art which is only one person deep is no art at all; art that looks back as well as forward is where the challenge lies.

 

Steve sees his work as individually made pieces which are unmistakably members of a single family. They can be collected and used in sets where the individual pieces have complementary glazes and shapes - a 'harlequin' set. Although working from Enfield Steve takes his work to Wales for the salt glazing process due to the resulting fumes & noise. Steve marks all his work with both his own mark and the year which makes his work the ideal choice as a commemorative piece. We carry a stock of Steve's work on a permanent basis, this will usually include some larger pieces, teapots, ginger & lidded jars as well as jugs, mugs and bowls. - we have a number of pieces produced by Steve combining porcelain and stoneware components. This will usually include  some  cups and small jugs plus lidded jars and small teapots. A great exponent of salt glaze

 

Steve Harrison's pieces are marked and date stamped for the year. Many pieces exhibit a lined depression made with a wheeled tool.
