- Further Information
TRESTON HOLMES STUDIO CERAMICS is now situated at Kenley in Waterrow having moved from Kilve on the north coast of Somerset. Treston set up his studio in 1991 though the interest in ceramics had started 20 years earlier when he was involved in education. Much of Trestonís work is decorative, with form holding most importance in the making.
Some pieces are high fired to stoneware temperatures above 1250 C', glazed with matt or semi matt surfaces or decorated with coloured slips and oxides. Effects are often achieved with multiple firings. Other work is coated with layers of fine liquid clay which is then burnished at the leather hard stage and fired at a much lower temperature and then treated with a smoke firing achieving a leather or wood like surface with carbonization marks redolent of Neolithic pit fired pottery.
Forms are influenced by a number of cultures present and past as well as other potters work. Mediterranean culture such as Greek, Roman, Phoenician and Sumerian wares inform some of the pieces. African and some South American including pre Columbian have also had some influence. Other Potters work have also had their effect such as Hans Coper, Lucy Rie amongst others from more modern times
