Tony Smither

Tony is a professional potter making sculptural stoneware birds and animals for house and garden. He uses a variety of manufacturing methods including throwing, coiling, press-moulding, extruding and slip-casting (and often a combination of one or more of the above). Most work is oxidised in an electric kiln, but some pieces are reduction fired in a gas kiln.

He works with Doreen Gardner from their studio in Devon, selling through galleries and other retail outlets in Britain and worldwide and also exhibits at RHS garden shows and at Art in Clay.
