Welcome!

 

Gill grew up in the cornish village of St Agnes, from where she still sources her clay. Gill fell in love with clay at primary school after making a large pinch pot, when she was told her pot would not be 'real' as it was not going to be 'fired' a fascination with the material was born. Basic throwing lessons at Newquay Tretherras Secondary School led on to qualifications in Art and Design including a Master's degree in Ceramics.

During 16 years of Art and Design and Ceramic teaching Gill continued to throw pots as presents for friends. Moving to Sytch Farm five years ago gave her the chance to have her first private pottery and an opportunity to build on her skills.

All pottery is hand thrown, turned and glazed by Gill and fired with food safe glazes in one of her two kilns. Gill loves a bit of peace when working and likes listening to books on audio, she can complete a book a day in busy times. Not very rock 'n' roll but very relaxing!
