Anton Todd - Anton Todd Ceramics
I am self-taught potter using clay as a vehicle for my ideas rather than concentrating on building functional work. I develop pieces of work that are based around my love of the sea in all weathers. I am also fascinated by harbours, the boats that they shelter and the buildings that nestle around them. I am also interested in exploring abstract ideas linked to rock formations, waves in water and anything else natural and sometimes mechanical that inspires me. I see ideas in almost anything and transform these into possibilities. Although a keen reader of fantasy, this does not play a major influence. All of my work is based on reality; I have been there and seen these places!
I live on the Norfolk coast and can look out at the sea from my house. I am quite often down on the beach collecting driftwood to use with my work.
