Anton Todd Ceramics
I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m a retired teacher with a love of all things clay. I use clay to develop my work from my love of the sea in all weathers and from vivid childhood memories of holidays spent in Devon and Cornwall. The expression, in clay, of these memories is my passion. I am fascinated by harbours, the boats that they shelter and the buildings that nestle around them. None of my pieces are based on any particular place or harbour but feature elements of steep sided huddles of buildings leading down to a harbour. Some of my latest work is based around the evocative scenes, in my mind\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s eye, from the wonderful \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'Under Milk Wood\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' by Dylan Thomas. My work is high-fired stoneware decorated with oxides, underglazes and glazes. It is waterproof and frost-proof making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor dispay.
