Mo Jupp, following his National Service, enrolled at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts where he was taught by Hans Coper, Lucie Rie and Colin Pearson. he then went on to pursue his vocation in ceramics after further training at the Royal College of Art where he studied under David Queensbury.

After leaving the RCA Mo held part-time lectureships at Farnham, Bristol Polytechnic, Bath Academy and the Polytechnic of Central London in Harrow as well as a visiting lecturer in almost every Art school in this country and abroad. His distinctive figure sculpture has been selected for numerous solo and group exhibitions including Sotheby's and Galerie Bresson in London, the Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia and the Crafts Council. He has work in many museums as well as the permanent collection of the V&A.

'I have tried to be true to my vision of ceramics as an art form. I make with intention, to make clear an idea. To be awkward I sometimes see domestic ware in the same light.'
