The Art of the Potter


David Binch lives and makes pots in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. He has a small home studio and fires his pots in a kiln using mains gas. He makes most of his pots using a potter's wheel and fires them up to Cone 10 (1300°C) stoneware temperature with reduction during the latter part of the firing, total time of firing 12 to 14 hours.
David is self taught and is greatly influenced by the pots, writings and the art of Bernard Leach and his life long friend Japanese potter Shoji Hamada. He places his own works very much in an Anglo Oriental Tradition of making and of seeing.
