About

Bill has been making professionally for over 25 years, exhibiting and selling both nationally and internationally.  In the past he has specialised in domestic stoneware, porcelain and raku, predominantly thrown but also including fun hand built sculptural pieces. 

Alongside his making Bill also discovered a love of teaching – particularly the joy of teaching students to throw pots on the wheel. In 2010 he founded Clayabilty a popular pottery school in North Somerset offering a range of courses. Many of his students have gone on to become professional makers, with one starring in the first series of The Great British Throw Down! 

Bill has recently returned to making at scale via a collaboration with Mark McCabe, Head Chef at The Ethicurean and contestant on Great British Menu 2023. You can read more about this collaboration here. This is a new chapter for Bill and Moore Pottery, influenced by his surroundings at the beautiful Barley Wood Walled Garden in Wrington, North Somerset, and also inspired by his love of bringing people together – both through making, and through food. 

Bill also takes inspiration from his own collection of British studio ceramics and is proud to be working as part of that tradition. He particularly admires the work of David Leach for his throwing skill and attention to detail.
