Jacob Chan is a local maker based on the Wirral in Merseyside.

"My work is heavily based around my cultural background and heritage. Being half Chinese and half English my ceramics take inspiration from traditional Chinese shapes and forms, whilst the surfaces are heavily decorated in slips and oxides that contain other raw materials such as sand, slate and broken pottery collected from around the coastlines and mountain ranges of Britain. I use these materials to represent my Western culture and my cultural journey through my creativity." - Jacob Chan
