This is a new and exciting role for a potter who would be required to produce limited edition ranges and ‘one off’ pieces but also be expected to regularly demonstrate these skills to the public. Denby would also like to extend the role to run a range of pottery classes to teach varying levels of ceramic production, so a high level of confidence, professional knowledge and presentation skill is required.
The role would require a specialist in hand throwing but with additional skills in a wide variety of hand building techniques to a level of expertise to enable small batch production of a range of products and sizes. Previous pottery experience would be a distinct advantage, but clearly strong craft skills are essential.
The post would suit a graduate (BA Ceramics or similar) and/or experienced specialist, with strong hand craft skills and the ability to manage clay prep., clay conditioning, glazing, hand decorating and firing of these ‘one off’ and batch production items.
This is a really exciting role which will appeal to a ceramic craft and technical specialist who would relish the opportunity to produce distinct craft items for a renowned ceramics brand and who would love to demonstrate their skills to the public and help to develop understanding and skills in others.
If you would like to be considered for this new position please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applicants is 24th April 2017.
