Oxford Ceramics Fair Trip 2018

Oooh it was cold!

But we all enjoyed the Oxford Ceramics Fair where over 60 of the UK’s leading  ceramists were showing their work. Some of us chatted with the makers, some just soaked up ideas, some went to the demo/talks and some even had the chance to look in the Pitt Rivers museum.

All in all a very enjoyable day giving us all food for thought and making.

Already looking forward to the next one in London, April 2019

Farnham Pottery has really fantastic artist, Victoria Brown coming to talk at the pottery this Wednesday, 17th October, 6-8pm.

Victoria is a great personality and works with Felt, she is well known for her rolled hats and wall hangings – further details are available on the Farnham Pottery Website.

The pottery is delighted to be able to attract this caliber of artist, so it would be great to see our pottery community supporting the event.

Farnham Pottery Wares

Richard and Geraldine Hogg are avid collectors of Farnham Pottery Wares. They have been in touch to let us know that they have created a new photo website that catalogues some of their collection.

Also interesting to see this picture below of Martin Ings finishing an owl jug at a West Street Potters open day in 2005.

Thanks for sharing. Take a look if you are interested in the wares made at the Farnham Pottery, between 1872 and 2000, when the business was run by the Harris family.
