Jon Faulkner came to ceramics at the age of 15, when he trained and worked as a production potter at Crich and Dartington Pottery in the UK. There he received an early grounding in the Bernard Leach / Shoji Hamada tradition which inspired the British studio pottery movement.
Not long after settling in Bermuda in 1992, he launched Bermuda Clayworks LTD, now the Jon Faulkner Pottery, where he continues to develop his signature style. Working primarily in porcelain and high-fired stoneware, Faulkner fires his ceramics in an environmentally friendly salt-fired kiln, which he built himself in 2008.
Faulkner develops all of his own glazes from scratch; his technical approach has been featured in both Clay Times and Ceramic Review publications.
