About Me
Richard Prentice

Ceramic Artist, owner of Blackbird Ceramics

I am a British ceramic artist and studio potter based in Pembrokeshire on the west coast of Wales, United Kingdom. My work is influenced by my surroundings of beautiful countryside, stunning coastal scenery and a land that has heritage and industrial past.

Having travelled around the world there is without doubt an international influence on my work, I have a passion for contemporary and modern art, but also an enormous respect for the classics. This is very much evidenced in my work and many of my current projects look at classical ceramic pieces and examine how I can recreate them in a contemporary style.

In July 2016 I opened a small gallery in the beautiful harbour village of Saundersfoot where you can see my work displayed in a contemporary gallery with a west coast style. When I am not in my gallery I am busy working in my local studio located further along the Pembrokeshire coast.

In Summer 2018 I was the cover artist for Creates Magazine, a copy of the article can be found here:  Creates Article.pdf  and in Autumn 2018 I was filming an episode of Weatherman Walking with the BBC for a new series coming out in 2019 - you can see a few photographs of the filming in my 'other images' section of the website here  Images

Thank you for visiting my website, I hope that you will visit my gallery. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like a private viewing, discuss and buy any of my work on-line, or enquire about upcoming projects and exhibitions.
