Simon Rich

Simon trained with Alan Caiger-Smith at the Aldermaston Pottery in the early sixties.  His present workshop was established in Narbeth, Pembrokeshire in 1972.  He has been featured on BBC Radio Four and on TV.  Simon exhibits in Japan and many other major cities in the UK.

For the last 25 years Simon has been working on and perfecting zinc crystalline glazes.  The glazes are applied to porcelain and then fired to 1270 c.  The kiln temperature is then dropped to 1140 C and held for up to five hours to allow the zinc oxide to form crystals.

Simon also explores other techniques including terra sigillata and raku pieces along with glazed ware ranging in colour from azurite to deep rich reds.
