Luke is a third-generation ceramicist. His background training is in graphic design and more recently he has worked as a chef. Both occupations have informed the development of his work, focusing on pared-down ceramic pieces, exploring the basic material qualities of clay, form, function and utility. There is an definite geometry in the precision and mechanics of Luke's work.
Luke began making ceramics following the recent passing away of his grandfather, British studio potter Geoffrey Eastop. His father is also a ceramicist. Luke is currently working in his grandfathers studio in Berkshire using his stains, glaze recipes, wheel and kiln.
