Tim Lake

Biography

Tim Lake is a highly respected British potter, living and working in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Tim’s approach to his art can be best described in his own words:

'Fluidity, fullness and lift are attributes I look to impart into my pots, always trying to bring the softness and suppleness of the material through to the end of the processes. This combined with the alchemic adventure of taking a base material and transforming it into objects of use and beauty is the satisfying goal.

A variety of different voices inform my ceramic practice, from East to West, Korea to Marshall, Karatsu to Button. I hope that the combination of these influences and personal endeavour lead to pieces of work that have a subtle beauty that only clay can allow to happen.'
