TurquoiseHare's Shop Announcement

Hello and welcome to Turquoise Hare, I hope you enjoy what you see, I love to play with clay.. The first time I picked up a piece of clay was at Adult Education Class many years ago, from then on I have been hooked. I have gained two City and Guilds qualifications from Poole College and attended recreational ceramics until recently. I now have my own Kiln and Potters Wheel.

I have always been interested in creating things, whether it is clay or other mediums, always looking to improve my skills. So far the most rewarding medium is clay. To take a lump of raw material and form it into a piece of art is very satisfying.

Whenever I have a spare moment my studio calls me, (the shed down the bottom of the garden) and I am off to wedge up some clay or glaze a piece calling for colour. I feel that there is no end to its “possibilities” just time is a problem, not enough of it to really give me true fulfilment. My inspiration comes from many sources for the most part it is the sea, what’s on it, in it, and around it, all are captivating and give me endless ideas.

I am currently working on a line of window hangers and also pendant necklaces; I use sterling silver chains, bails and chokers.
