Rollington Barn & Open Studio 10
Jonathan and Anne indulge their mutual passion for potting in their studio on the banks of the River Frome. We are both inspired by our fabulous surroundings of river, woodland, garden, coastline and beach, and we each enjoy experimenting with different clays and techniques when interpreting the natural surroundings. Jonathan is mad about bowls; in his eyes it is ‘all about the curve’! All thrown, they come in all shapes and sizes and are beautiful, tactile and useful. Anne enjoys both throwing and handbuilding and at the moment is experimenting with handbuilt seashell and lichen pots using porcelain and stoneware. She also loves making ceramic and silver earrings. Colour is important to both of us and we make all our own glazes in the studio from raw materials in the search for exciting colours and surfaces. This rather unpredictable process has an element of alchemy to it and requires a lot of experimentation and testing in the search for that magic glaze! We warmly invite you to visit our studio, have a go on the wheels (if we are not too busy with visitors) and sit awhile in the garden to enjoy the river view, cows, hens and ducks.
