Christine-Ann Richards trained at Harrow School of Art and Technology under Mick Casson (1971-73), she worked with Bryan and Julia Newman and later with David Leach. She set up her first workshop in London, in 1975 and now lives in Somerset. She is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association and the Society of Designer Craftsmen. Much of her work is influenced by her journeys to the Far East, and especially by her first visit to China. For the last 20 years she has co-ordinated trips and accompanied people on visits to other artists in China and Central Asia.

Christine's classical oriental style thrown porcelain vases and bowls are glazed in transparent, dark green crackle and copper red glazes. Her black on white splash decorated wares are reminiscent of her interest in Chinese calligraphy and painting. For more than a decade she has been making large pots, water-features and sculptures for the garden. The Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to Japan in 1996 to look at the way that water is used in landscape and architecture has been an ongoing source of inspiration for these works.
