I am an amateur potter and artist. These are activities I took up when I retired and I love working in my studio, especially when it is cold and rainy in the winter months. Turning what is basically a lump of mud into a pleasing shape I find most exhilarating and I revel in bright colours especially on white earthenware. Opening my electric kiln after a glaze firing is always incredibly exciting.
I work with porcelain and also with brown and white earthenware, using a variety of techniques. I make many of my own glazes and I am always experimenting. I aim to produce inexpensive, cheerful pieces which people will enjoy using.
I sell my work in aid of the RNLI at an annual exhibition in the Rock Institute. I do this jointly with our artist daughter, Sarah Poppleton. It is great fun.
Visitors are welcome but need to make an appointment.
