About

Chris Taylor grew up in South East London.

In 2000, after completing a degree in ceramics at the University of the West of England, he moved to Devon to embark upon an apprenticeship at Dartington Pottery. For the next five years he worked in several ceramics studios across the country gradually honing his making skills.

In 2005 Chris began to produce his own range of handmade table ware whilst teaching part time at North Devon School of Art. This he did for four years before leaving his teaching job to study at the Royal College of Art.

He has now completed his Masters degree in Ceramics and Glass and during this time he has produced several new pieces of work as well as winning two awards; one for lighting design and the other a travel scholarship which he used to undertake an artist's residency in China.

For his graduate show Chris has produced an exciting new range of highly decorative one off pieces.
