Jo Beer is a Truro based artist who has been making pots since the 1980s. She studied in Devon and Cornwall under Roger Cockram and Bill Marshall. Alongside her art practice, she assists artists with learning difficulties. Jo's stoneware vessels are strongly influenced by Neolithic pottery. Her individual pieces are made either by throwing or coiling. She uses oxides, river sand and quartz, with very little glaze, in order to achieve the required textural quality to her work.
Jo Beer's work has been shown at the Lander Gallery, Truro, the Burton Gallery in Bideford and the Camelford Gallery.
She became a member of Taking Space, a group of women artists, in 2017.
