Jack Laverick is a ceramic designer and maker. He studied at Leek College of Art and also studied Modelling and Mouldmaking with Ed Bentley as well as working with his father, ceramic artist Tony Laverick. Having a life long interest in photography, Jack also studied that with Dave Butcher the renowned landscape photographer. He tries to incorporate his photography into his ceramics where possible.
Jack initially started to use porcelain to make hand made buttons which was the starting point in him learning about glazing and also selling his work to the public. He then went on to develop his work which now consists of slip cast porcelain lighting with smaller items including tea light holders and planters.
He uses the translucent quality of porcelain for the lighting with industrial themes. Jack also uses his own screen printed decals which he designs using his drawings and photography on his porcelain candle holders. He has recently been developing more sculptural and geometric forms and also using body stains with his porcelain.
