Bruce Chivers - Ceramics
Bruce Chivers was born in Australia and has been resident in England since the mid-1980's. He runs a successful pottery at Dunsford in Devon. After teaching for several years specialising in art/ceramics he established his own pottery and was lucky enough to work and study with Takoa Sakai, a visiting Japanese potter. After solo and joint exhibitions in Australia he travelled to Europe and took a residency in Devon. He is now an exhibiting member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and a full member of the Craft Potters Association (CPA)
of Great Britain. His work is Bruce Chovers raku fired red and cream ceramic bowlrepresented in major Crafts Council listed galleries in the USA, Europe, Australia, London and throughout the UK.
Bruce produces two distinct styles of work, a range of highfired porcelain utilising carefully-controlled crazing glazes, and Raku incorporating the spontaneity of the fire. Bruce's work on Raku has been accredited in the ceramics book - Raku: A Contemporary View of Work; and '5 Devon potters', profiles of Svend Bayer, Bruce Chivers, Clive Bowen, Nic Collins and Tim Andrews. He is open to discuss commissions and also runs pottery training courses.
