About

Hand thrown studio pottery

My stock line is...I grew up in a pottery!! My Father, Alan Brough was also a potter, and I spent a lot of my time in the pottery when I was very young. My dad told me that it probably never occurred to me that I couldn't make a pot!
Alan worked in London in the 1950's, supplying Liberties and other major stores. In the early 1960's he moved to Devon with my mum and opened a pottery there. Following that, they migrated to St Ives, Cornwall to work with Bernard Leach as the throwing foreman.
My pottery career began aged about 13, stacking kilns and throwing mugs/applying handles in my dad's own studio in Newlyn. Following that, aged 18 I went to study pottery at Camborne, where my throwing tutor was the world renowned William Marshall. My dad said it was important for me to develop my own style, and not be a little copy of him. Ever since, I have been developing my throwing and designing, culminating in the fine brush detail of my earthenware range (every piece is individual, with no patterns etc used) and also my range of flame fired stoneware.
I sell mainly in Cornwall, but I see Etsy as a way of showing my work to a wider audience. Thanks for looking, and please don't hesitate to ask should you have any questions, I will answer any enquires individually.
Best wishes,
Adrian
