Barry Lockwood - Artist
About Barry Lockwood
I originally trained as a designer in printed textiles, with a supplementary option in printmaking.
I attended Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and Loughborough College of Art, following this up with training to be an art teacher at Leeds Polytechnic, and yes I did teach for while!
It was only later that I discover ceramics, and have recently been devoted to developing my skills in this area of practice.
I hand build all my ceramics, and in the main concentrate on Raku as a process.
I love the finishes that can be produced using Raku firing, which adds nicely to the finish that I try to achieve based on texture and applique. I strive always to improve my Raku skills, but still love the unexpected results. The very essence of ceramics probably, that moment of opening the kiln door!
I work in the cellar of our house, bisque firing with an electric kiln.
I have recently been introduced to the wonders of wood firing and pits, so watch this space.
