Jo Millar


My ceramic work is evocative of natural forms, and often bears a nod to the pottery of the ancients. I specialise in hand-building, using coils to construct sculptural pieces on a variety of scales, for interior and exterior domestic settings.

As well as the undulation of natural form, I am also driven by colour and texture, and as a result my work is varied in outcome as well as scale. As well as larger, more ornamental statement pieces in black and white stoneware clay, I conversely make small handheld, highly decorative and ornate porcelain pieces embellished with gold and platinum.

When not creating my own ceramics, I lead a highly successful Art department in a local prestigious independent school.
