Christine’s ceramics are both ornamental and functional. They are organic in nature and inspired by water, its movement and its effect upon objects and surfaces. Designs and shapes found in water, sand, pebbles and rock formations are amongst the many starting points which influence her work. A limited palette of glazes and oxides are used to emphasis the surface textures and simple shapes which make up each original piece.
Ken & Valerie Shelton
Ken and Valerie Shelton make all their work by hand; each piece is individually crafted in their Cheshire studio. Ken makes the pots from fine white earthenware. Pots thrown on the potter’s wheel are left to dry to a “leather hard” state and are then turned on the wheel, trimming away excess clay to produce the final shape and a smooth polished surface. Valerie decorates each piece with free-hand painting using ceramic colours; no transfers or guidelines are used so each piece is truly unique. A transparent glaze is applied over the colour and the pot is fired again in the kiln to over 1100°C.
Sarah hand makes white earthenware ceramics in her purpose built studio in Yorkshire including charming flowery mugs, jugs, vases and teapots. Here she does all the making, designing, surface decoration and firings. Each piece is individually decorated & hand painted.

John is an honorary member of The Art & Craft Guild of Lancashire. He carves a wide range of birds & accepts commissions.
