Mark Ciavola
Clay runs through Mark's Veins thanks to his mother Anna who introduced him to the art and craft of ceramics since an early age. He studied in the UK under the guidance of potters such as Phil Rogers, Michael Casson, Terry and Beverly Bell - Hughes amongst others, to then further his studies in Harrogate College and Cardiff Institute. ​ Mark has since been involved in various projects such as stop motion animation, illustration and mostly teaching arts and ceramics at various levels up to Btec national diploma at MCAST in Malta. Based in London and having set up Potters Thumb, Mark is hoping to spread his love for ceramics and making his work available to all those who appreciate hand thrown or hand made ceramics.
