Tim studied at Stafford Art College1979-1983, completing it with a first class honours in ceramic design. In the early years of his career he worked for companies such as Spode, Staffordshire potteries, Wedgwoods and Maws Tiles. As time went on figurative sculpture became a passion, so he practiced and taught himself to clay sculpt to the high standard required by such companies as Royal Worcester, Coalport China and Lennox China in the USA. Once established he enjoyed a good career for a number of years in this field. He was offered a partnership with other creative's in a small design lead pottery based in Stoke on Trent. Although it was good to be part of a team with a common goal he found it sculpturally restrictive. He now enjoys complete creative freedom to express himself using the medium he loves and knows well.
