Bill Moore - Potter
Bill Moore produces a range of contemporary porcelain and stoneware pottery from his studio here at The Walled Garden. The pottery is all hand thrown and decorated with his own unique glazes.
After taking a B.A. Hon's in Ceramics at the University of West of England, Bill served an apprenticeship at the Poterie de Bourzolles, South France. Living and working in France and more recently travelling in New Zealand have been a great source of inspiration for the pottery and the work he produces today.
Another source of inspiration comes from the problem solving in the making process, from throwing the clay onto the wheel, to the application of the glaze and the firing. There are so many processes to be considered and thought through. The form of the pot is most important, looking at the balance of line in relationship to the different elements within the shape, the rim to the foot ring.
Bill runs a number of pottery courses; 10 week courses, Raku workshops and a one day Throwing Masterclass.
