About teacher:

Oliver has been working with clay for the past 8 years, over this time he has picked up many skill sets, his main focuses are in throwing and glazing, during his masters at The Royal College of Art in London he was developing his own glazes and creating large sculptural wall pieces, after being influenced by satellite images around the world. He has been captivated through glaze chemistry and still learning his own firing techniques. Now as a woodfired technician he begins to develop new reduction glazes and methods of firing.
