My name is David Worsley. I studied Fine Art in Cornwall (Falmouth) and London (Royal College of Art) during the 1990s before moving to Saltaire, Yorkshire, in 2002. In 2007, I founded an art and textile festival here in Saltaire, which I left at the end of 2010 to concentrate on making.
I trade under the name Dove Street Pottery.
I am a potter making wheel-thrown ceramic tableware, striving to create simple pots of formal beauty that with daily use enhance and enrich one’s life. My aim is to marry beauty with function to create a pot that is a pleasure to use. My pots are made by hand and wear that quality openly. My influences are potters who look to the east for inspiration. I love the elegance of this type of pottery, its quietness and simplicity.
My workshop is located at Dockfield Road studios, Q20 Theatre Creative Arts Hub, Dockfield Road, Shipley, West Yorkshire, BD17 7AD.
