In this short film slip-ware potter Jean-Nicolas Gérard shows us how he throws his salad bowls at his studio in Valensole, France.

Jean-Nicolas, widely regarded as the potter’s potter, is one of our most popular makers, never failing to lift spirits with his ever-joyful outlook on life and his gloriously colourful pots.

We have so far held two exhibitions of his work, one back in 2013 and another more recently in 2015, both of which were highly successful. His work continues to elicit the most double-takes of any potter when placed in our shop windows and we can’t wait for the next consignment from Valensole.
