Ian Paul Rylatt

I was born and raised in Lincoln and attended Lincoln College of Art. I then went on to Manchester Polytechnic, and have been a self employed potter since 1988. I now live with my wife on a small holding in the hills of Wales.
I have been playing with clay since I was 10 years old. Since I set up my focus has been on teapots and drinking vessels. All pieces are handthrown and constructed and fired
in an electric kiln to stoneware. More recently I have been looking at the physical relationship of the pieces themselves which has led to the more recent pieces.
