We are thrilled to present our youngest artist on the team! Finn Mountain is a creative young man who has just started out on his journey as a businessman and ceramicist. He has a natural talent for the craft from envisioning designs and glazes right through to completion. All Finn's pieces are handmade entirely by him in his Mother's studio.
"Hi my name is Finn Mountain, I am 10 years old, my hobbies are motorcross, art, hunting, boating and all sorts of P.E. At Mum's we have two cats and one brother who has just turned 17. I also have one sister who is 18 but shes at Otago University. At Dad's we have one dog and one sister who is 2 years old, she is very cute. I started making leaves because I need a new computer but I really want a new bike. Mum said it would be best to get a new computer first for school. So after I get a new computer I will save up for a new bike. Thanks for listening. Bye Finn."
Finn’s talents are obviously inherited from his talented Mother who has her own popular ceramics studio based in the beautiful Bay of Islands here in New Zealand. It is there in his Mothers fabulously well-equipped studio that Finn creates his own range of platters, arriving after school and working hard until close.
Walking into their studio offers a feast of colour, design and innovative things to see. Everything from the decorating, glazing, loading and unloading of the kilns to the creation of new designs and forms happens in this space.
We wish Finn all the best on his creative journey and are pleased to have such a talented and determined young business person on board, let’s see if we get you on a new bike soon.
