mark's pots

In 1982 we moved back to Shropshire where I had been brought up, buying a redundant village school. A change to making garden pots was a way of getting underway, testing new kilns and having something to sell quickly. In a very short period of time we had built up a considerable number of regular customers and wholesale outlets.

1995 saw a return to making high-fired stoneware between commissions for garden pots, and a chance to start woodfiring - something I had always longed to do.

I completed my last commission for Powis Castle in 2001, five huge niche pots to sit in five stone reveals on the top terrace of this wonderful garden, and in 2002 I began again where I started out, making stoneware pots but in a very different market.
