Born in Zimbabwe, Gregory finished his education in England. He read Art History at Cambridge and was a Bendictine monk for 18 years.
Gregory has trained under some of the most distinguished potters of the 20th century. At Buckfast Abbey, he was apprenticed to Mary Boys-Adams (nee Gibson Horrocks), a pupil of Bernard Leach, and at Quarr Abbey, Molly Attrill was his mentor. Gregory worked and taught at Dartmouth Park Pottery in North London for ten years. Hauser and Wirth, Somerset, have selected him as their Artist in Residence the summer of 2019



Another of the Dartmouth Park Pottery potters, Gregory Tingay was taught at the Buckfast Abbey Pottery (as Brother Alexander) by Mary Gibson-Horrocks who had previously worked with Bernard Leach. I'm told that she took many of the photographs of Leach at his wheel.

This is a small vase of his with a geometric scraffitto pattern. I think his work is highly original. Beautiful carved base.
