The item arrived safe and sound when the seller said it would. Communication with the seller was great. The item was a present and both the recipient and myself are very pleased with it. The salt pig is lovely and just the right size. I especially enjoy the fact that the spoon matches, making it a pleasure to use.

About

A series of lucky events led to my wonderful job throwing pots!

A chance course at pottery night classes led to a love of ceramics and then the good fortune of finding my own studio space in the town where I live has led to the wonderful opportunity to earn my living throwing pots.

I throw most pieces on the wheel, but do hand build a small selection of work as well, using a beautiful porcelain body. Each piece is thrown, turned, bisque fired, sanded and then glazed in one of my own speckled glazes. They are then re-loaded in the kiln and fired to 1240 degrees, sanded one last time and are then ready for their new home.

The process from beginning to end can be as short as 2 weeks and as long as 8 weeks, depending on the pieces being made, the weather and commitments at the studio.

I love the process of throwing on the wheel, which has never lost its draw for me, and the feelings of excitement mixed with trepidation is there every time I open the kiln door - seeing all the beautiful colours and new experimental pieces is wonderful when it all goes well, but disappointing if it doesn't.

Luckily most firings are wonderful and I continue to love my work!

    Madeleine is a student, studying at drama school in London, who enjoys artwork and music in her spare time. Once the pot has been thrown and bisque fired by Penny, it is passed to Madeleine to hand drawn the original image directly on to the piece, before being glazed and fired again by Penny.
