is a professor of ceramics, and was shortlisted for the Jerwood
Applied Arts prize in 2001. His work in many public collections
around the world, Walter is renowned for his remarkable contribution
and pioneering work in both salt and creamware (Whieldon) pottery.
He was the Gold Medal winner for Craft and Design at the National
Eisteddfod of Wales, Newport 2004.
Walter's work falls within two distinct strands, his saltglazed
work and his more recent creamware work, which is inspired by his
love of eighteenth century Staffordshire pottery. He has always
been influenced by the traditions of vessel making. In producing
each new piece, Walter's aim is to create an ''extraordinary object
to do a commonplace job.''
