Simon Olley is a potter and ceramic artist who is fascinated by the relationship that develops between man and man’s best friend. His thrown work combines illustration and sgraffito to depict and celebrate the exciting (sometimes imaginary) life of his Labrador Retriever (the least demanding of supermodels) in permanent, everlasting ceramic form – so much easier to keep clean than the real thing! Simon also undertakes commissions worldwide, often based around an owner’s favourite four-legged friends.

 Simon works with PF580 (White Earthenware), ES5 (Original) and PF700 (Porcelain White Stoneware) to create his ceramic pieces.
