Based in St Ives, the home of Cornwall’s famous Bernard Leach pottery, Simon Bayliss is an artist and dance music producer working in slipware ceramics, video, poetry, watercolour painting and performance.

This short film produced by Simon shows us his process in creating a ceramic artwork For St Austell.  Bringing the Leach legacy up to date he describes the motified tiles he’s designed as “iconographic representations of St Austell and Cornwall which can be compared to the modern day use of emojis”.
