Welcome to my website, home of HB Ceramics colourful handmade stoneware pottery. I am a Studio Potter living and working in the heart of Staffordshire, creating handmade ceramics to use and decorate your home. All my work is hand-built by coiling or slab building. I make a variety of decorative pieces from wall plaques to curvy coiled vessels. Due to the nature of my methods each piece is unique.
My work is inspired by many things, especially the natural world . I live in a semi-rural area and the beauty in my surroundings never fails to capture my imagination and on an everyday walk with my dog the changing seasons bring new delights to observe, the unfurling of a bracken frond or the blue-bells in flower to dappled shadows and twinkling sunlight on water.
I love textiles and architecture and find colour and texture appealing to the senses. I take pleasure in creating items to enhance interiors.
My love for ceramics began at school , and I continued on to do a degree in ceramics at the University of Wales, Cardiff. I now work from my small studio making my range of entirely handmade and decorated pottery at home and sell through Galleries, on-line
and fairs. I am a member of the North Staffs Guild of Craftsmen. I have had my work feautured in regional and national publications and completed bespoke commissions for Wetherspoons. I am always happy to accept commissions and can make pieces to suit individual requirements.
