Michael Pugh is a self taught potter. Originally working in a very primitive situation, Michael dug wild clays and built and fired his kilns with wood. He now pots in a new studio using white stone ware clay, firing with gas and producing colourful decorative domestic ware.
His inspiration comes from the oceanic creatures and marine vegetation which he incorporates as designs in cobalts and copper. Another area of interest is the swamps and lagoons and he paints lotus, waterlilies, frogs, geckos often leaping with joy in the moonlight. The ever-present brush turkeys have presented him with a subject for brush work as they strut about reinventing the gardens around the studio.
The pottery is high-fired to 1280/1300 Centigrade.
