Steve Claydon is a ceramicist based in St Just, west Cornwall. His work has followed a similar trajectory to that of ceramicist Bernard Leach, in that he has formed lasting relationships with fellow professionals in Korea and Japan.
In 2020 he was selected, as part of the 'Leach 100' celebrations, to participate in a venture to create work for display at the Leach Gallery. For this commission he will produce a sculpture based on the traditional architectural Shoji sliding screen.
Claydon's work has been exhibited globally and he has shown with several commercial galleries in London, Milan, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and Munich.
