Personal Statement

Jonathan Waights has been a ceramics artist since he was apprenticed to a small tile factory in the Portuguese village where he grew up. Returning to the UK as a teenager he set up a bespoke, hand painted tile company, Art on Tiles. More than thirty years later, Jonathan began allowing himself to experiment with clay, marrying his decades of experience in ceramics decoration with his newfound interest in form, exploring – at last – the potential for ceramics in three dimensions.

His work in clay is displayed on this website. Originals are available for sale, limited editions of his designs are available to order and he is also happy to discuss bespoke commissions.

Over the years he has taught the art of tile decoration to apprentices and in occasional workshops for the general public. He hopes to extend his teaching into ceramics from his own, small pottery at his home in West Sussex. The Piggery Pottery is a converted flint and brick outbuilding which was a ruin when the family originally moved into this Grade II listed property. The two trees growing through it were removed and the building materials retrieved from the surrounding ground before the building was restored
