Paul Barron

Born in Berkshire in 1917, Paul Barron began potting at Brighton College of Art in 1937, where he was a pupil of Norah Braden*. After the Second World War, in c.1945, he completed his studies at the Royal College of Art under Helen Pincombe. He made thrown slipware until c.1951, then changed to reduced stoneware with wood-ash glazes. He worked in a studio shared with Henry Hammond* in Bentley, Hampshire from c.1949 until his death in 1983. Also working in tandem with Hammond, he taught ceramics at Farnham School of Art (now the Surrey Institute of Art and Design, University College) from 1950.
