Nigel Lambert worked for the Forestry Commission before studying at Cornwall College of Higher Education. He worked with Roger Cockram at his pottery in North Devon, later establishing his own workshop in Bristol. In 1990 he moved to the Forest of Dean where he now lives and works. Lambert’s work has been included in exhibitions throughout the UK. In 1995 he was commissioned to make a range of pots for Habitat. His pieces are thrown and press moulded in white earthenware and decorated with cobalt, iron and manganese and copper oxides, freely applied with brushes and fingers. Lambert’s works are down-to-earth practical pieces, much in the style of French and Spanish peasant ware. His glazes have a smooth glassy surface and the harmonious decoration that reveals his interest in the abstract painters of the St Ives group - Roger Hilton, Terry Frost and Patrick Heron - complements the forms.
