Im Sharon and first fell in love with ceramics at school and after a long career in nursing & nurse management went back to clay!
Sculpting comes naturally to me and I have developed my skills & techniques over the last few years. I am forever learning new skills on this amazing clay journey, and have a genuine passion for sharing this knowledge with others.
I run workshops from both The Crafty Potter studio & My Home studio. I'm also a Guest instuctor for clayshare.com, a fantastic online ceramic community with hundreds members & online classes.
I post how to's & classes on our facebook page, for both adults & children, so do pop along and give us a like.
I make small Functional Pieces of pottery such as cups, lidded pots, fruit strainers and platters, made either on the wheel or by hand. Really it's whatever takes my fancy.
My Huge Passion and what I spend alot time doing, is Sculpting. Usually Inspired by animals, my sculptures are either fun & Chunky, with an aim to represent their quirky & characterful natures or they have a more natural feel to them.
No matter what it is, each piece is lovingly designed & individually handmade from chunks of either stoneware or paperclay.
Although I make many, especially workshop pieces, no two creations are ever the same. All my work is glazed, fired & sold at either The Crafty Potter Studio, or my Home Studio.
