John Jelfs is a one of the leading British potters, he was born in 1946 and studied ceramics at Cheltenham College of Art.
His pots are all hand-thrown, and the focus has always been on pure form. John uses celadon, ochre and shino glazes, made from wood ash and clay, ingredients local to the studio. Decoration is kept to a minimum.
John's work has been widely exhibited in leading galleries including Gallerie Besson, Contemporary Ceramics and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Alpha House in Sherborne, Primavera in Cambridge, Rufford Ceramics Centre in Nottingham, as well as other important galleries.
It is included in many collections at home and abroad.
