Terry Shone

Born: 1941
Place of Birth: Stockport

Terry Shone lives and works in Whitby, North Yorkshire. After training in ceramics and sculpture at Leeds Arts University and Goldsmiths’ College, London, he was awarded a Rockefeller research fellowship at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

A lifelong interest in the traditional slip-wares produced by country potters has informed his work, as have the myriad examples of lively and idiosyncratic images found in nineteenth-century Staffordshire ceramic models and flatbacks.

Terry’s current work is often, but not exclusively, hard-fired earthenware. Thrown, slab-built and modelled forms are decorated with coloured slips and glazes and may be reworked over several firings using enamels and lustres. These techniques, used in new ways, have enabled the production of work which retains the freshness and immediacy of traditional pottery whilst maintaining a strong contemporary feel.
