Niklas Preukschat

After finishing a three years course at the school for ceramics in Landshut, Bavaria, I decided to go to England to develop my pottery skills as well as to learn how to run a pottery. Throughout my apprenticeship at the Barn Pottery which is run by master potters Nic Collins and Sabine Nemet I will assist them in the workshop with mixing clay and glazes, making slabs and coils and learn more about the woodfiring which includes the process of preparing wood, firing the kiln and cleaning the pots. Under the critical eyes of Nic and Sabine I’m also looking forward to improve my throwing skills and to develop my own shapes and glazes.
