Matt Horne

"My passion for pottery started from an art lesson in the first year of my GCSE's at the age of 15. After leaving college I sought an apprenticeship at an established pottery to continue my training eventually making pots for their shop. During my 2 years there, I learnt lots of different techniques including production throwing using stoneware clay, turning, glazing and different firings.

"In 2008 I made the decision to set up my own ceramics studio near my home in Folkestone, Kent.  I continued to use stoneware clay for producing decorative and domestic pottery and even though I enjoyed this, I wanted a new challenge.During my training years I had heard about many different styles of ceramics, however the one that caught my interest the most was Crystalline because it is so unusual and different from any other type of pottery. I have been concentrating on this technique since 2009, where I have been experimenting with new, more contemporary shaped vases and testing new glazes, always trying to produce more exciting colour combinations. All my Crystalline work is hand thrown using high quality porcelain."
