About the Maker
Raised in Cornwall, Callum Trudgeon studied traditional furniture making and design at Cornwall College. He joined the Leach Pottery in 2014 as the first recipient of the Leach Seasalt Bursary. This bursary provides the Leach Pottery with funding to train apprentices with little or no experience in ceramics. The apprenticeship gave Callum the chance to learn about all aspects of production pottery by working as a part of the skilled production team at the Leach.
Callum finished his three year apprenticeship in 2017 and has stayed on as the first production potter fully trained at the Leach Pottery since it’s re-opening in 2008. While working part time for the Leach, Callum produces a range of his own work. ‘My work mainly consists of wheel thrown functional items for everyday use. I like to produce pots that are simple and quickly made with the intention of selling them at affordable prices.'
Callum's new pots were made at the Leach Pottery and fired in Oxford University's Anagama kiln.
