Nick Rees

Born: 1949, Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset

Nick began potting in 1972 when he joined John Leach for an apprenticeship at Muchelney Pottery. Apart from a three month stint working with Brian Newman at Aller Pottery, Somerset in 1976, Nick has remained at Muchelney Pottery as a Master Potter for 40 years.

Nick's days are spent producing the catalogue range of oven-to-tableware at Muchelney Pottery. Parallel to this he has developed his own signed range of work where he explores surface detail, creating distinctive pieces which are sold through a number of galleries, including the John Leach Gallery at Muchelney Pottery where there is a permanent selection of work available.

2009 saw Nick begin a new journey exploring the possibilities of oxidised firing in an electric kiln. This poses new challenges and will offer a new dimension to his signed pieces. He also continues to wood-fire his pots in the three-chambered climbing kiln at Muchelney Pottery.
