Beautiful Pottery Bowls
I live in the town of Stroud among the Cotswold hills in the West of England. I like to make pottery, particularly bowls for fruit and deeper salad bowls. These I aim to sell in the Stroud Farmers Market, on the second Saturday of most months – for details, click on the Contact page icon at the top.
Most of the bowls have cheerful bright colours and bold patterns, and it is nice to think they might brighten any room or home they are in. The shape of the bowls might resemble some of the amazing Chinese pottery forms, for example masterpieces from the Song Dynasty. I enjoy investigating pottery from around the world and different ages, from the Neolithic to the present day, and learning from them.
The pictures below show examples of my pottery bowls:
