I enjoy making pots that are mainly functional but also beautiful and lovely to touch and hold. I love the throwing process and find that often the pots grow and form themselves of their own accord into something unexpected. That is only the beginning of the process, turning the pots may change their character again. The next stage, the glazing, is fascinating as it may give a rather unusual result which adds to the fun. Of course the very final stage is interacting with people as they come to look at and discuss the pieces and the process of making them. Last year several of my pots went abroad and I love to think of them, and ones that have not gone so far afield, being enjoyed in their new homes. 

We enjoy making Raku pots and sculptures at our studio. Raku firing is exciting but there are often casualties as pots get dropped due to the extreme heat or they don't get fired hot enough. We get some wonderful colours in the glazes when we have a successful firing. I particularly like making figures in this way.

Sadly due to lock down I have not been able to do any recent pottery or raku firings but I am looking forward to doing more pots and sculptures in the near future.....

Concentrated Green Bowl
Stoneware height 7cm x width 18.5cm
Ref: 2020-5096
This pot had two layers of glaze - a green glaze on top of white. The green glaze has ‘slipped’ down the pot leaving a white rim and a lovely greeny blue streaky colour before coalescing at the bottom of the pot.

£45.00

Charlotte

Lion Fountain
Stoneware Approx 30x30
Ref: 2020-5007
This lion was based on an antique wooden lion plaque that belonged to my Father. I think that he has a very friendly face. I have been enjoying sitting in my garden listening to the sound of running water. He comes with his own solar pump and the water cycles round the system so he doesn’t need a separate water supply once set up.

£375.00

Pouring Bowl
Stoneware Height 7.5cm - Width 13
Ref: 2020-4512
Lovely green glaze - a useful bowl designed for pouring

£20.00

Black Shiny Bowl

This glaze is so dark it is almost but not quite black. It has a lovely textured surface and a deep shine.

£30.00

Finger Pot
Stoneware
Ref: 2020-4510
This greenish pot has three semicircles cut out of the rim - very tactile.

£30.00

Hazy blue bowl
Stoneware Height 7cm width 16cm
Ref: 2020-4509
This glaze has a wonderful deep blue speckle shot with a hazy blue white which clouds the surface.

Deglazed Pot
Stoneware Height 9cm - Width 15cm

Thin asymmetrical pot that was dipped in a greenish glaze that was then scraped off before the pot was fired. The result is a nearly nude pot that has retained some vestiges if the glaze.

£45.00

Fluid Pot in Guacamole
Stoneware Height 10cm - Width 18cm
Ref: 2020-4498
I really enjoy making this style of fluid pot - it is a difficult to balance the fluid form with complete collapse of the pot. This glaze breaks beautifully into a myriad of greens.

Ref: 2020-4497
