Mark's Pick of the Week

I have chosen this vase as it brings back wonderful memories of a trip we took to Japan. You can find many traditional potters still using techniques perfected centuries ago. In fact The Great Wave, that this vase was inspired by, was first produced by Hokusai nearly 200 years ago. Amazing that it retains such a contemporary feel.

If this is your work please get in touch and you can have a free studio fee next time.

Commemorative items for Hen Party Packages

If you book a hen party with us and choose packages 1 or 2, you’ll also paint a bonus item as a special memento for the Bride to be! We can help you design and decorate either a bowl or jug with your fingerprints and names. 

We'll help you put your fingerprints on your item, and if you leave it to us and we'll transform them all into beautiful little characters; be it chicks, butterflies, cats, bees, flowers, or anything else you can think of (within reason...😉).

We'll then write out your names and decorate it so the bride will never forget the people she was surrounded by at her hen party ♥️ 

Have a flick through the pictures to see some simply lovely examples we've worked with other hen's to create! 

Lady S goes to the Pavilion Ice Rink

We had great fun with Lady S at the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink last night.  We had dinner and then skated.  The staff are really friendly and helpful so for some who are not experienced skaters it is really reassuring.  Then we opened our Secret Santa Gifts to each other - needless to say we had all painted pottery for each other!

Its not too late to come and paint your Christmas Gifts.  And we have late nights on the 14th and 21st December.

Mad Pot Monday

Some amazing pots for you this Monday! Our Potter Holly went on a tour of Middleport Pottery whilst she was exhibiting in stoke-on-trent last week and came across some incredible creations!

Gigantic thrown pots in front of a live audience, ceramics formed from jelly moulds from 1785 and crazy lobster feet on a bowl.
