Ronaldo Wiltshire


Ronaldo is a London based ceramic artist and lecturer at Morley North Kensington College.

He is born to two Barbadian potters and specialises in creating functional and decorative ceramic art, often finished in his own developed glaze formulas.

He was a contestant on Channel 4's 2020 Great Pottery Throw Down and loves throwing on the potter’s wheel as well as using hand-building techniques to create sculptural pieces.

“Working with clay is not my job, it’s how I express my inner thoughts and deep feelings. I use the studio as therapy and it brings so much joy to share this gift with others.”

“The Hand is the cutting edge of the mind.”

That quote, taken from Jacob Bronowski’s ’The Ascent of Man’, is something we firmly believe in here at Create Space London.

Our aim is to provide people of all ages with access to and understanding of both traditional skills and some of the latest technologies involved in art and design.

We believe that the creative process fosters innovation in all areas of learning, business and culture as well as helping meet the practical challenges of life in the twenty-first century.

This is above all an exercise in communal sustainability and shared creativity and problem-solving.
