Keith Brymer Jones
Many people know me as the judge on TV shows like the Great Pottery Throw Down & The Victorian House of Arts & Crafts but my real job, and my passion, is ceramics. The first bit of ceramics I ever made was a pottery owl, when I was 11 years old. The process of pottery gave me a sense of escapism.
Successful submissions will be exhibited at the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art gallery in Conwy, from the 7th January until the 25th February 2023 . Work selected for the exhibition will also be included on the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art website, which will go live on 7th January.
