Potter Man Studio

The Potter Man Studio is located in East Yorkshire, UK, and is run by ceramics artist Lee Steele. Mr. Steele studied 3D Design at York College of Further & Higher Education (an associate college of the University of York), afterwards he opened his own studio/gallery. His own work is inspired by history. His passion for historical inspiration comes from years of Medieval, Viking, late Roman, and Saxon re-enactment. He also, like many artists, draws inspiration from the natural world.

Potter Man Studio - Salvage Ware

Another favorite of Mr. Steele, is a texture experimentation inspired by the world of Steampunk and post-industrial landscape. In what he calls is ‘Salvage Ware’, he explores with clay, oxides, and glazes how to create a piece that has the appearance of rust, corrosion, or other form(s) of deterioration or weathering. By giving his work the appearance of age, he also creates the illusion of history and that makes the pieces all the more interesting. I makes you wonder about them, ask questions, and imagine the reality where such a piece could have existed and what its story would be.

Potter Man Studio though is about more than just Mr. Steele’s own work. It’s also about teaching. The Potter Man Studio is open to the public to take classes and workshops. There are workshops are offered for adults, children, as well as families. He even offers workshops for parties, clubs, and societies!
