Linda Unsworth

A potter based in Pembrokeshire, Wales

Originally from Prague, I am a self-taught potter, now working from my home studio in Pembrokeshire, Wales. 

 

I throw pots on a momentum wheel, powered only by foot. I like its tranquility, natural rhythm and the slower speed. 

My glazes usually consist of wood ash, clay and stone. I also like to leave some clay bare to show the colours created by the path of flame.

 

I fire my pots in a wood fired kiln with the firing taking around 24 hours after an initial pre-warming of the kiln the night before.

My work is inspired by my natural surroundings and often includes materials collected locally which creates a sense of belonging. 

 

Other influences come from the love of Tea, Eastern philosophy practice and aesthetics.

I think of making pottery as a form of meditation when hands centre the clay and the clay centres the mind.
