Norman Potter (1923-95) was an English cabinetmaker, designer, poet and teacher. In the Second World War, and immediately afterwards, he acquired the skills of cabinetmaking; his life-long anarchist beliefs were also developed then. Through the 1950s he ran a workshop in Wiltshire, and began to work also as an 'interior designer' (a term he refused). In the 1960s he became a teacher, first at the Royal College of Art in London, then at the Construction School of the West of England College of Art, Bristol. After the first publication of What is a designer, he gave his energies increasingly to writing. His book Models & Constructs (1990) documented and reflected on his life & workPotter, Norman is the author of 'What Is a Designer Things, Places, Messages', published 2002 under ISBN 9780907259169 and ISBN 0907259162.
