Traditional Handmade Garden Pottery
Posted on 1st February 2024 at 13:15
We take pride in our traditional, frost-proof, garden pottery that is hand-thrown right here on site.
We use the same alluvial clay as William Blyth roof tiles, extracted from the banks of the River Humber.
The clay is weathered and blended on site to ensure longevity in our frost-proof terracotta.
Our pots are thrown by hand using a pottery wheel and a combination of pressing techniques.
These skills have been passed down generations.
Our potter, Gabriel Nichols and his team have over 30 years’ experience between them.
We have a wide range of pots in various shapes, sizes, and finishes, both traditional and modern for you to choose from.
We also offer a bespoke service which allows us to meet any ‘pottery needs’, whether it be a new design, commemorative pot, or a personalised pot.
All our pots are fired in our coal-fired down-draught kilns which creates a pot with subtle variation in colour with a deep terracotta finish.
You are welcome to see our potter at work, where he can be found in the potting shed.
