Micki Schloessingk

Micki makes wood-fired salt-glazed tableware, fired to a high stoneware temperature.

Travelling in India in 1968, Micki came across their ubiquitous everyday earthenware pots. She loved the connection between the earth and the pots and was introduced to throwing on a Leach wheel by Gurcharan Singh of Delhi Blue Potteries.

After a brief period at Sussex University, she left to become a potter. She worked at Terrybaun Pottery in Ireland, making slip trailed earthenware and then studied under Mick Casson and Victor Margrie on the Studio Pottery Course at Harrow College of Art, in London (1970-72).  She was taught by Walter Keeler and Mo Jupp, encouraged by Gwyn Hansen and inspired by John Reeves.
