Ceramics - One-off handbuilt slip-decorated earthenware using bright shiny glazes and bold colours. Mono-printing and decals are used with gold lustre accentuating the colour.
Most of the work is functional and images on the pots often reflect contemporary trends in a humorous way. Choose from urns,teapots, mugs. jugs, plates, cups and saucers, and vases.
The pots can commemorate a special event too, such as christenings, weddings and anniversaries.
Ceramic work is available for sale and visitors to the workshop are welcome by appointment.
The workshop is accessible via a garden path at the potters home(not suitable for wheelchairs).
