Paul Jackson studied in Studio Ceramics at Harrow School Of Art in 1977. He later taught in London for a short time before he moved to Cornwall where he converted an old chapel into his current studio and home.

Each piece Jackson makes is hand thrown on a wheel, he often uses white earthenware clay to freely sculpt each ceramic. More recently he has been working with local stoneware and porcelain in a salt glaze kiln, referencing his inspiration from the Cornish landscape.
