West Cork Craft and Design Guild - A guide to some of Ireland's finest craftwork.

Jim Turner

Jim is currently developing a new range of extruded pottery which is funky and fun with the emphasis on bright, striped decoration and quirky shapes. All work is slip-glazed and fired to 1300°C.

He still produces trophy sculptural forms, but the surface treatment is moving from a dry, 'volcanic' glaze towards a wood-fired, salt glaze. Jim explores new directions in ceramic art, combining skilled work and an element of chance, with extraordinary results - true serendipity. His work is a counter-weight to some of the bland bulk ceramics being produced today. The individual creativity of the craftsman is once more liberated.
