About the Pottery

The History

I’ve been making pots off and on for the last 40 years. In the 1970s I studied at Bretton Hall with Jim Robison then worked at Aldermaston Pottery under master potter Alan Cagier- Smith. Following 3 years teaching pottery in St Neots, I had 4 children and taught in Primary Schools while making lettered commemorative earthenware bowls in my garage.
Six years ago my husband Paul built the pottery and I have been enjoying making pots again.

The Process

I am now working in stoneware clay, firing in a large gas “Lazar” kiln.
My work falls into two areas: thrown domestic ware, decorated with overglaze colour, oxides and sometimes using wax resist or sgraffito; and thrown and coiled garden pots sometimes incorporating text and often to commission.
