Post by DIANE on April 25th 2011, 4:15 pm




Jason was born in Liverpool in 1946 and started working at the LeachPottery in 1976. He continued there until 1981 when he opened his own studio near St. Just. However, He spent 8 years spent travelling extensively in North Africa, the Balkans, the Middle East and Asia before settling down to pot in his own studio in St Just. Jason has exhibited around the world, including solo exhibitions in the National Museum & Gallery, Liverpool; Boymans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam and on several occasions at the Seto City Cultural Centre in Japan, as well as having work on display in the Tate, St. Ives.

I think that I remember reading that Jason wasn't his given Christian name and that it was a nickname that he picked up. If that's so then they would rhyme.

Jason Wason kindly replied to my email and said indeed his surname Wason does rhyme with Jason. I told him about the forum and said I hoped he would register.
