"I have heard Charles Bound compared to, and categorised with, other potters who have chosen wood-firing as the medium to achieve their work. That Charles uses fire and clay is undeniable, but the similarity ends there. Charles pushes the materials to the limit over and over - both in his handling of the clay and the repeated firing.

For me Charles Bound is an artist who happens to use clay and fire to achieve form and colour in the same sense that Tapies uses his native Spanish earth to make the concretions that are his paintings.

For those who can only see Charles Bound's work in the context of ceramics he has to be one of the very best we have."
