Elizabeth Monk

2002 QEST Scholar - Pottery

Liz has worked in the craft pottery sector since gaining a ceramic design degree in 1996. During this time she trained with some of the leading names in ceramics today, both from the UK and Japan, and completed a four and a half year pottery apprenticeship.

She now works from Liz Monk Studio Pottery & Gallery, based on her family farm in Worcestershire. Her work is made completely by hand, predominantly on the potter’s wheel and decorated with traditional oriental glazes, and she creates a range of original domestic ware and one off pieces.
