Bruce produces two distinct styles of work - a range of high-fired porcelain, utilising carefully-controlled crazing glazes, and Raku, incorporating the spontaneity of the fire. Bruce was born in Australia and has been resident in England since the mid-1980s. He runs a successful pottery at Dunsford in Devon. After teaching for several years specialising in art/ceramics he established his own pottery and was lucky enough to work and study with Takoa Sakai, a visiting Japanese potter.
After solo and joint exhibitions in Australia he travelled to Europe and took a residency in Devon. He is now an exhibiting member of both the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and the West Country Potters Association, and a full member of the Craftsmen Potters Association of Great Britain. His work is represented in major Crafts Council listed galleries in the USA, Europe, Australia, London and throughout the UK
