"I have always preferred small to large. I feel more comfortable in the environment of a small car or small house. I now work in a studio the same size as the box room I grew
up in."

Swindell employs the traditional means open to any studio potter, though on a different scale and to
a more refined finish than most.
He refers to what he makes as 'pots', and they usually accord to the basic traditional concept of a ceramic vessel, having an hollow interior and a hole in the top, though it is rarely large enough for us to see into the interior of the vessel.
The porcelain bodies of these pots are lightweight, smooth and fine textured, creating a feeling of delicacy and preciousness which Swindell likens to that of a sea shell. But durability and stability have to be integrated with this evident refinement, all of these factors held together in what he calls a "secure marriage" of process and concept.
Swindell's work is in many public and private collections around the world including,

Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Birmingham City Art Gallery
Royal Scottish Museum, Edinburgh
National Museum of Wales, Cardiff
Crafts Council, London
National Gallery of Victoria, Australia
Institute of Art, Chicago, U.S.A.
