I make functional stoneware. All work is wheel thrown; I am passionate about working on the wheel, pure magic! I apply simple surface decoration with ceramic rollers on the leather hard clay. I use a white glaze made for me in Ireland. My work is sent throughout the UK, to Europe and the States.
For handles I use akebia quinata vine, a lovely natural material which I import from Japan. Coils of akebia are soaked in water for two days, after which the strands are pliable and can be used to create handles. All work is oven and dishwasher proof apart from pieces with akebia.
The pottery is in a corner of our beautiful secret garden, overlooking fields and the river Thames. There is ample parking on the Green. Lovely walks from the Green across the fields, over the weirs to Sutton Courtenay, along the river or past Culham lock.
Pots will be displayed in a large gazebo in the garden. Visitors by appointment only. Please email email@example.com to make an appointment. Appointments are on the hour for 45 minutes giving plenty of time to wander around in the garden, have a beaker of home pressed apple juice, see the hydroponic greenhouse and raised veg beds and look at pots! I will be working in the pottery in a corner of the garden but will be delighted to have a chat. Appointments are for one person, a couple, family or small group of friends. Hand sanitizer and disposable gloves to handle pots are provided. It will be lovely to see you!
