By My Hands: A Potter's Apprenticeship

Beginning with his childhood, education and artistic awakening, ceramicist Florian Gadsby weaves anecdotes about particular pots and processes into the narrative of his life, exploring what he has learnt from specific pieces he was taught to throw during his apprenticeships and how they have informed his philosophy and approach to his work. Reviewing the book, Nigel Slater declared: 'Every page made me wish I was a potter'. 

Florian Gadsby has devoted his life to pottery, refining his technique towards the point of perfection - and as his skill has grown, so has his social media following, which today numbers in the millions. Based at a studio in North London, he releases three new collections per year, characterized by simple forms and sharp edges, which sell out in a matter of minutes.
