"I make a range of functional stoneware pots"
My pottery background is college training, followed by working in several potteries, repetition throwing functional domestic pottery.
In 2012 with my partner, we moved to Somerset and started Westend Pottery. I make a range of functional stoneware pots, plus individual pieces, often exploring surface decoration on wet pots, plus applied slip designs enhanced by various glazes. A particular favourite is using Ash glazes, always a changing picture, as each batch will require adjustments, which is both exciting and nerve racking.
