Kevin Akhurst


Pottery and Ceramics


Kevin Akhurst was a guest artist, taking part in the West Berkshire and North Hampshire Open Studio's event in 2023. He makes glazed stoneware pottery – pottery to use and also items that are primarily decorative.

There are three aspects of his work that particularly interest him – creating a vessel shape that asks to be held and explored with the hands, producing a complex surface that is always interesting to view, and conveying a sense of movement and energy through form and surface marks.

In recent years he has been firing his pots in a wood-fired kiln, introducing salt and soda to produce and modify the surface glaze. This often produces pots where the surface shows the path of the flames in the firing.
