Jeremy Raven – Circle of Motion

jeremy-ravenJeremy’s artistic venture started with his Dad.

He was an artist himself, painting in oils and making wooden items. When Jeremy was around seven, his Dad would be making swords and shields for him and his brother. Jeremy would be watching and asking questions about what he was doing – it was fascinating!

For Jeremy himself, his creative side didn’t really peak until he was around sixteen when he started to produce drawings and paintings, as well as write poetry. He went to King’s Lynn College at twenty three and completed a BTEC in Art & Design, and then went on to do Ceramics for a further two years.

With this experience under his belt, he opened Redstone Pottery at Snettisham Farm Park, joined West Norfolk Open Studios and took part in many art exhibitions.

Jeremy’s enthusiasm for his art has never diminished and he is constantly looking for new ventures and avenues for his work.

Jeremy is now a regular maker at Fakenham Makers Market (and you will also see him most weeks at the Thursday Market). He makes unique pieces of wooden furniture and other useful objects. These pieces often incorporate his artistic ideas as well.

He operates under the name ‘Circle of Motion’. Jeremy comments: “The name represents my belief that there are no boundaries to what can be created in the different media I use. My work uses recycled and upcycled timber and other items and once you start putting this together it’s just amazing what happens!”
