BEHIND THE WHEEL: Clover Lee from the BBC’s Great Pottery Throw Down
Saturday 29 April 2017, 12:30pm Booking
We are delighted to welcome the BBC’s GREAT POTTERY THROW DOWN finalist and part time illustrator Clover Lee to a unique 50 minute session on our wheel as part of the Makers Festival. Join, watch, learn and ask questions as Great Britain’s leading potter Clover Lee take you through the experiences and steps for creating beautiful vessels on the wheel.
Clover Lee was born in a small town in southern China – and moved to Wales in 2003, to study accountancy.
The 33-year-old moved to London after graduating, and her interest was pricked when Clover attended an evening class at Clapham Pottery in 2011.
Clover is proud of her Asian heritage and creates a mixture of functional and stunning items – such as bonsai planters, decorative vases, sake sets, mugs and tableware.
She says she is “inspired by the traditional art and culture of China and Japan”.
As well as pottery, Clover is a self-taught illustrator.
She has been practising manga drawing, an Asian-style comic similar to anime, from the age of 12.
Clover also regularly attends comic conventions around the UK.
