Tim Gee

Tim fell in love with ceramics and the wheel on his first encounter in 1996, since then, he has obtained a B.A. (Hons) in Applied Arts, from the Plymouth College of Art. He is currently studying for an MA at Plymouth College of Art.

After College, he set up his workshop in 1999, specialising in individual thrown translucent Porcelain bowls, and though functional, their main purpose is decorative.

Awards include:

  • Distinction student award from The Society of Designer Craftsmen
  • The Plymouth Gin award, in association with Jane Hagan.

His work:

With his new work, Tim explores the intimate relationship between hand and crafted object; in ways, the various textured glazes he uses can influence how the work is handled. He encourages visitors to caress, fondle and stroke his work, as it is only during this sort of intimate encounter that the work is fully appreciated.

His new pieces are lidded containers, a form specifically chosen to invite further exploration; these are forms whose lids must be lifted to fully reveal their concealed interiors, each with its own coloured surprise.

Tim’s work is thrown using porcelain and fired to 1260° C, with texture and colour coming from his own recipe glazes.
