Marek Pitera
London, UK

"I work in stoneware, an ancient, earthy and strong ceramic medium capable of expressing an enormously rich range of form, texture and tone. It is perfectly suited for my use of it as an exploration of the subconscious. A bond between each piece and its place of making is created by including London clay sourced from the studio site in the Brent river watershed into most of my clay mixes."

"My interest in ceramics was ignited by a chance viewing of an exhibit of early Studio Pottery at St. Ives in 2004. This grew over time, and after ten years led me to change career from medical diagnostics to ceramic sculpture. I graduated from the City Lit ceramic diploma course in 2017 following which I spent a few years developing my work, building a studio in West London and teaching myself to build and fire kilns. Self sufficiency and sustainability through recycling are important to me: I fire my work in two downdraught kilns of my own making. Many of my tools and materials are self upcycled from found objects."
