About the Maker


Pottery Owner

 

I'm Amanda - Maker, Kiln loader, Order Packer, Website builder, Photographer
Hand building for me is my hands and a rolling pin. I use various rolling pins Textured hand rollers, a wooden rolling pin from the kitchen and a larger table top slab roller, that makes larger sheets.
I love the simplicity of working the clay with my hands. My pieces are tactile honest and organic you can see the marks my hands have made, I don't try to make things too straight as I don't want it to look mass produced or machine made the imperfections are the beauty of handmade.
I'm very keen on doing all I can to help the environment, this will be reflected in my packaging its also the reason I started selling pottery with soap dishes to encourage people to give up plastic bottle soap dispensers.
The first online shop I opened  in 2018 is on Etsy is you would like to read more reviews click on the Etsy logo

I'm based in Oxfordshire. UK. Working from a tiny shed in the garden. I have part time other job and I hope to have a pottery studio with electric and water one day, every purchase you make helps me towards this goal.
