John Burgess



John started making ceramics in 2019 after taking a beginner’s course in pottery techniques as a hobby. He instantly felt a connection and a love for throwing clay, and due to Covid he had more time to perfect his techniques, which in turn led him on a new career path as a full-time ceramicist and potter. He now hosts workshops in Edinburgh as well as making work for sale.

He loves to make practical beautiful work that will be used on a day-to-day basis and throws clean simple lines without complications to aid functionality and maintain a contemporary style.
