What’s On…

Pocklington Area Open Studios   6th/7th May   

10:00 am – 5:00 pm daily

Providence House pottery, Ellerton YO42 4PB

For the next Open Studios event I have the luxury of being at home at my own pottery in Ellerton. This means I can show all the ranges of work – including the contents of the Seconds cupboard! If weather permits I’ll be doing throwing demos out on the lawn at midday each day – so pop along them if you’re interested! Silversmith, Avril Cheetham will be my guest for the weekend. 


I’ll be exhibiting new work inspired by my walks in mountains and on Fox glacier in New Zealand. Oval dishes, and vessels sculpted in white porcelain. Also on show will be my Barnacle Shell and Pebble ranges of vases, bowls and bud vases. Prices to suit all pockets from £22 – £200.
