Master potter Nick Rees, working in Somerset with John Leach at Muchelney Potterya

Nick began potting in 1972 when he joined John Leach for an apprenticeship at Muchelney Pottery. Apart from a three month stint working with Brian Newman at Aller Pottery, Somerset in 1976, Nick has remained at Muchelney Pottery as a Master Potter for 40 years.

Nick's days are spent producing the catalogue range of oven-to-tableware at Muchelney Pottery. Parallel to this he has developed his own signed range of work where he explores surface detail, creating distinctive pieces which are sold through a number of galleries, including the John Leach Gallery at Muchelney Pottery where there is a permanent selection of work available.

2009 saw Nick begin a new journey exploring the possibilities of oxidised firing in an electric kiln. This poses new challenges and will offer a new dimension to his signed pieces. He also continues to wood-fire his pots in the three-chambered climbing kiln at Muchelney Pottery.
