Artist Statement

Simon Olley’s thrown work fuses illustration and sgraffito to depict and celebrate the exciting (sometimes imaginary) life of his Black Labrador Retriever (the least demanding of supermodels) in permanent, everlasting ceramic form – so much easier to keep clean than the real thing.


 Simon works with PF580 (White Earthenware), ES5 (Original) and PF700 (Porcelain White Stoneware) to create his ceramic pieces.
