Jon and I have been in contact for 10 years so I am really excited that we have managed to get some work of his to show. The character of his work is so fabulous with a definite quirky sense of humour as well as some serious sculpting capability.

These pairs of feet really made me smile - pose as you wish!

Artist Bio: Jon Barrett Danes

Ceramics has been Jon Barrett-Danes’ family for at least five generations. The earliest records show a pottery at Hoo in Kent dating from 1834, and Jon’s great-great-uncle Edward Baker worked at the well-known Upchurch pottery in Kent from 1909 (and later owned it).

Jon completed a degree in ceramics at Bristol in 1985, having specialized in thrown ware and glaze development.

He also spent time building kilns and experimenting with wood-fired salt glaze. He used these glazes to good effect on the teapot forms that became an obsession for many years.

He decided to move on from thrown work and drawing inspiration from the collaborative work of his parents, which combined classical vessels with mythical and imaginary creatures, he started making animals.

His first piece was a pig, which, he says, seemed to emerge quite naturally. He soon moved on to sheep, chickens, cows and horses, constantly refining and developing the form.
