The Little Pot Company

I have always been interested in pottery and have become obsessed for the past couple of years. I bought my wife a pottery wheel for her birthday and ever since she taught me how to centre clay I became hooked.

Since then we created a small studio and bought a kiln. I've spent many hours reading and practising to develop my throwing and glazing techniques. I also work as a chef which influences the type of pottery I make, practicality is a major consideration when creating forms.

Throwing pots on the wheel is probably the most enjoyable part of pottery for me. From being unable to centre a piece of clay, to being able to manipulate fine details has been a very rewarding journey.

The chemistry of glazes is also quite fascinating, and appeals to the scientist in me. Opening the kiln is also great fun, you're never quite sure what you will get, a bit like Christmas!

I think pottery can say a lot about a potter, I hope mine says I'm honest, useful and stylish.

    I'm a potter, chef and all round nice guy! I currently spend one full day a week making pots, as well as evenings in my small home studio.
