Goodwin-Jones ceramics is the partnership of Richard and Julie. Richard, an established maker, recognised for his unique range of ceramics has worked solely with Raku since leaving Art College in 1984.
Julie created hand-made textiles for about 15 years, and also worked in arts and crafts development before joining Richard in his studio.
Their work is influenced by the colours and textures they find within the harbours, boatyards and coastline of Brittany and Cornwall, where they lived for 5 years before moving to France.
Both are drawn to old boats with plenty of character, such as rusty hulls or colourful, distressed paintwork. The distinctive Raku process allows them to reproduce similar effects from their research onto the surface of their work.
