Steve Neville - ceramics

Based in my central Salisbury studio, I am following in my father’s footsteps – a lecturer and potter at what was the Teacher's Training College of Sarum St. Michael, part of which is now the Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum.

Drawing on my engineering and fine art background I am refining my personal vision of ceramics. While continuing to develop my throwing technique, I try to bring a refreshingly straightforward approach to my ceramic work which results in elegantly pleasing forms that push the boundaries of utility by making delicate, finely balanced work that defies gravity and use as well as more grounded pieces.

I use simple partial glazes to give the porcelain and stoneware subtle hints of colour and design.
