It was a great pleasure to meet the guys from http://www.midgleygreen.com/shop/ Their enthusiasm for handmade work of all sorts of materials is infectious. I'm very pleased to have some work available via their online shop.
They have written some lovely words about my work and practice.....
Based in the rural countryside of Carmarthenshire Tim Lake produces his
beautiful ceramic tableware. As a potter Tim is influenced by a vast
array of cultures and objects, his pieces hold a reference to a long
line of Japanese and Eastern influenced pots but on the other hand they
also seem full of life with contemporary input. It is a difficult task
to come across pots that are truly alive and playful yet raw and earthy,
Tim strikes that balance perfectly. The St Agnes clay that performs
such an important role in creating the rough textural finish in his work
is then confronted with the painterly slip that is applied onto the
surface, which appears light and effortless. Tim works with the very
traditional clays, slips and firings that are common practice in studio
pottery but his ceramics hold on tightly to a progressive movement
forward bearing in mind contemporary needs and aesthetics.
