Episode 4. Ronaldo Wiltshire
Welcome to Creative Conversations, a podcast series where Morley College students and Morley Radio volunteers meet with local role models in the creative industries, they will tell us first hand their career paths and how they got to where they are today, hopefully inspiring the next generation of creatives who live and study in the borough, as well as our listeners. This podcast is brought to you by Morley Radio and The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.
Ronaldo is a ceramic artist and tutor at Morley College London – North Kensington and also runs ceramic workshops at Create Space London, Willesden Green. By the time he was 15, he had been exposed to various ceramic and artistic techniques and had become highly involved in the production at his father’s workshop in Barbados. After high school he completed an Art & Design Foundation Diploma at Croydon College, and then attended Ravensbourne University London Design College where he studied Product Design.
Ronaldo creates functional and decorative ceramic art and most of his pieces are glazed using his own recipes, often inspired by the colours in the countryside of Barbados where he grew up. His artwork displays the glowing shorelines and vibrant landscapes in the shades of blue, green and white.
In January of this year, Ronaldo was a participant in the Great Pottery Throw Down which aired on Channel 4.
