Paul Tebble has been making pots for more than forty years. He learned from potters loosely within the Leach tradition. Throughout his career he has made a diverse range of work, all in high-fired stoneware and porcelain, from traditional ware for domestic use through to contemporary ceramic art and fine porcelain. He established The Meadows Pottery in Edinburgh in 1988, which he runs in partnership with the potter Junko Shibe. Japanese influences are clearly evident in his work, as is the relentless beauty of the Scottish hills and shores. He has work in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Scotland. Everything he makes is handthrown on the potter’s wheel.
