These pieces are from our collection which Jan and I have been acquiring from the late 1970s. We never intended it to be a ‘collection’ as such, we just bought and swapped pieces we loved from friends and colleagues over the years.
Since moving into our renovated and converted barn we have less space to display and enjoy these pieces. Rather than continue to hide these lovely pots away in cardboard boxes we decided to give other collectors the opportunity to purchase and enjoy these terrific ceramics.
Some of the pieces are by ‘big names’, some by lesser known makers, most are British but there are several pieces by foreign potters. Most we can identify and have clear memories of the story behind the purchase, some we have sadly forgotten the makers’ names – this is not a comment on the quality of the work but on our aged memories! However we think all are great examples of the potter’s art.
In the future we shall be periodically adding to this page with more ceramics and other objects including jewellery and textiles.
All dimensions are in centimetres, height x diameter unless specified differently
