David Partington is a ceramic artist and educator. He is interested in the historic and universal appeal of clay as a common material with creative, utilitarian and industrial applications.
He produces high-fired stoneware pottery thrown on the wheel, mainly commissioned for restaurants and retail -- his clients include James Martin, John Lewis and The White Company. David is inspired by the country potters of 18th and 19th century who produced pots that were unpretentious, useful and beautiful.
David has worked in creative education for over 20 years, engaging diverse communities with the practice of clay. A recent commission, Islington Mill: Place in the Community (funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund) engaged local audiences with the fabric of Salford's textile industry, through the industrial heritage and social narrative of the area. He regularly works in primary schools and recently appeared on Show Me How, for Milkshake!, an educational programming slot for Channel 5.
He has exhibited nationally and internationally, with many pieces held in private collections around the world. His studio is based at Islington Mill, Salford.
