Artists & Makers

I established the Selborne Pottery in 1985 after attaining a BA Hons in ceramics at West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham.

All the work is hand thrown and turned stoneware.  No machines or moulds are used and the traditional techniques have taken many years to perfect. The pottery does not try to mimic the past but draws on skills rarely practiced today.  

Combined with high temperature stoneware glazes, fine brushwork, wax resist and glaze trailing, the finished pots with rich copper red and cobalt blue glazes are both functional and decorative whilst still having a contemporary look.
