José Carvalho – Potter
‘I am a potter from Portugal and have been living in London for 10 years. My work covers a broad spectrum of both decorative and functional pieces. I use stoneware, earthenware, and Porcelain Clay. Recently I have been producing “V” and “U” shaped pieces with a volcanic textured glaze which I created. I enjoy the challenge of reproducing a glaze that would blend well with the pots I throw. I am pleased to say I am now set up in my new studio by Ravenscourt Park and taking bookings for pottery lessons and courses:
‘Introduction to Pottery’ – topics include:
Throwing, Pinch Pots, Coiling, Slab Technique, Tile Technique, Slip-casting Technique, and Pottery Decoration.
Group Tuition: £30 per hour
Groups for children, teenagers, and adults
Private Tuition: £45 per hour
‘The extent of what I cover depends on the ability of the students. Students can develop their chosen techniques in further courses. Prices are per student and include reading materials, clay and glazes. Your work can be taken home.
Summer and school holidays courses
