Jack Doherty

Biography

Jacks' work explores vessels and the ancient layers of cultural resonance embedded within archetypal forms. Made from porcelain, the forms are thrown and then carved and shaped reflecting the fluidity of the material and physicality of making. The elemental colour and surface texture are created by the fusion of fire and soda in the intense heat of the kiln, leaving behind a subtle palette of smoky grey, lemon, russet and turquoise. On many levels, the pots Jack makes are figurative pieces; each has its character, particular emotional range and response.

Jack is Chair of the Ceramics Potters Association for 10 years, a founder and current Chair of Ceramic Art London and from 2008 - 2013, the first Lead Potter and Creative Director of the Leach Pottery.
