Biography

Ian Godfrey was born in 1942 in London. From 1957 to 1962 he attended the Camberwell College of Arts (then known as the Camberwell School of Art and Crafts) and studied first painting and then pottery under Dick Kendall, Ian Auld, Hans Coper and Lucie Rie who was particularly impressed by him.

In 1962 he set up his first workshop in the City Road, Islington, North London. His work was attracting attention and he was called upon to give exhibitions in London.

His very distinctive style owed much to mediterranean, near-eastern and oriental influences. He did not mark his work, but it was hardly necessary as it is instantly recognizable.

Ian died young in 1992 leaving a legacy of work in many public collections around the world including the Victoria and Albert Museum.
