Julian King-Salter


Julian King-Salter is a contemporary potter who made his first pot at the age of twelve before starting to make pottery full time in 1983 in Pembrokeshire, Wales. He was self-taught and began making individual hand-built stoneware pots using flattened coils and then pinching. The glazes used were also his own recipes that he arrived at by experimentation and then applied by pouring and brushing with many layers. King-Salter’s work has been exhibited widely and is regularly supplied to leading galleries through out the UK, the United States and Australia. Despite being self-taught, King-Salter began to take part in group and solo exhibitions regularly from 1986 and had solo exhibitions at many prestigious galleries such as Beaux Arts, Bath; the Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh and the New Ashgate in Farnham, as well as the Harlequin Gallery. He now lives in the west Midlands, where he continues to be a successful and much sought after potter.
