The terracotta sculptures were inspired in part by Martin Waddell’s fabulous children’s picture book ‘Owl babies’.

One of our long-standing pottery birthday themes is the Owl & the Pussycat. The party goers get to make a little boat on the potter’s wheel and then fill it with characters inspired by the famous peom by Edward Lear.
We love families who fully embrace the occasion and run like mad with a theme.
The ‘race’ takes place on Sunday 19th October here on the idyllic Eastnor Castle Estate and takes in some of the most challenging off-road terrain in the country. The route is regularly used by Landrover to test their vehicles and makes for some hilarious running conditions as you can well imagine.
We always slip & slide our way around the course and this year there will be three of us running so please keep your eye out for Team EP!
An Autumnal collection of ceramic leaves made by the children at Staunton & Corse Primary School in Gloucestershire.
Although we weren’t directly involved in the making, we agreed to decorate, glaze and fire the tiles in our kiln.
I think they look really special and will make a wonderful mobile in the school.
Delighted to be back at the fantastic Brearley Nursery School in Birmingham. Spent a couple of sunny September afternoons a week or so ago, pottery teambuilding with the staff.
Teachers and TA’s were given the opportunity to brush up on their potter’s wheel skills as well as creating a collaborative colourful rainbow tile panel for the entrance hall.
They also hand built a tea-set for the children to play with in the class room. Here’s the brilliant T-pot drying out in the Pottery garden.
