AJ SIMPSON

AJ graduated from Grays school of Art in 2021 with a BA Hons in 3D Design, specialising in ceramics. In 2022, AJ won The Great Pottery Throwdown, and has since taken their practice full-time from their studio within the Deemouth Artist Studios community, based in Aberdeen.  

They craft a mix of wheel-thrown and hand-built pieces. AJ enjoys exploring the novel side of ceramics through their fun ‘blob’ series of decorative one-off characters. These creatures are inspired by AJ's love for illustration and collecting rocks as a child. Alongside their series of small ornamental figurines, AJ fuses fun with function in their series of blob crockery which includes blob mugs, bowls, plant pots and more! Recently they have begun pushing their sculpting skills to produce larger forms in a series of dinosaur blobs which showcase bright colours and goofy expressions.
