Richard Baxter : Potter

Richard Baxter has been a professional potter since 1981, when he graduated with a First in 3-D Design (Ceramics) from Loughborough College of Art and Design.

Richard's tutors included David Scott, current Head of Ceramics at Loughborough, and Martin Smith, now Professor of Ceramics at the Royal College of Art.

Richard worked in terracotta as a student, emphasising the effects that stretching, compressing, cutting, pushing and joining have on the material. Pots were heavily thrown with minimal slip-trailing and glazing of insides and were nominally functional. Main influences were traditional English and Japanese country pottery.
