Brian was born in Reading and lived there for 25 years, working for Trading Standards. He moved to Devon in 1970 still working for Trading Standards for a further 20 years. He then decided to become self-employed as a potter. Throughout his life Brian developed a passion for ceramics. By chance he met a Capo di Monte Agent who advised him to go into porcelain restoration which he did most successfully. After seeing samples of his work, Brian was approached by an agent of Prince Charles to re-create WEMYSS WARE as a job creation scheme. Although this did not materialise, Brian successfully produced a Collection of New Wemyss Ware which was very popular. As well as painting on Ceramics, Brian worked with other media and painted many Oils on Canvas.
All Brian’s waking moments centred on art.
