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.
It’s free (with drinks!) and sure to be inspirational and entertaining…..
Some of Victoria’s fantastic work on display at the pottery. I really love this!
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.

Thanks Graham for sharing the results of your ‘Fruit Cocktail’. Interesting to see how all the different elements influence the finished result…..I am sure you will be back for more!
Graham has come across an old interesting BBC radio programme about the funerary urn – Earth to Earth: Potted Immortality. No artifact is more synonymous with death than the urn.
