Daniel Boyle’s pots do much to epitomise the functional spirit of the Harrow ceramics course, from which he graduated in 1991 (and where he subsequently worked as a technician and studio manager). Now based in west Wales, Daniel makes crisply conceived and made tablewares, both salt and ash glazed. The appealing simplicity of his forms provides an ideal canvas for richly lustrous slips and ashes which add depth and movement to his pieces. He makes work ranging from flat-sided flasks and cylindrical lidded jars to beakers and balanced, elegant mugs. Daniel’s abilities as a designer, the clarity of his forms, as well as the innate life of his pots shows how strongly and individually the skills and ethos of the Harrow aesthetic live on, embellishing and enhancing our domestic spaces.
