Michael 'Mick' Casson

Ceramicist, Maker

Michael Casson was disqualified from service in the Second World War due to a neck injury and began making pots at evening classes in 1945.
His work continued until his death at Wobage Farm, the pottery he and his wife had established just outside Ross-on-Wye.

According to Walter Keeler in his obitually for Casson:

'Mick was attracted to the ideas about tradition, material and process that Bernard Leach expressed in A Potter's Book, but not to his orientalism; his own fascination lay with the culture of ancient Greece, and he was influenced more by Minoan and Mediterranean pottery. '
