Burton, Paul


My name is Paul Burton, a ceramic artist based in Matlock Derbyshire. All my bespoke hand crafted work is made and sold under the name of AQUARAMICS. Inspired by all things nautical and sometimes mythical I love making my dragons and quirky aquatic life. Each with its own personality. Drawing inspiration from Chinese San-cai glazing I have a great variety of glazes, which brings my work to life. This year marks ten years as a potter and shows I love what I do. Teaching and showing are the great bonuses to this great craft. I introduce a few different ideas each year and use the shows as a testing ground to see if I continue that particular design. This has been a great way to develop my work as I love interacting with the public.
