About Us...


I'm 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 several years. I have a huge passion for pottery & love sharing this knowledge with others, so in 2016 Me & Hubbit Ste (who also has a bit of a pottery bug!) purchased The crafty Potter studio.

I have lots of teaching experience and I love that I have now brought this into the wonderful world of clay. From The Crafty Potter studio I share this clay knowledge, along with all the tips & tricks so you can start your own amazing clay journey.

My work...

Is whatever takes my fancy, with so many areas in clay, I could never stick to just one type or area, I love exploring & dabbling and seeing where the clay takes me. My Huge Passion and what I spend alot time doing, is Sculpting. Usually Inspired by animals, my sculptures are usually fun & Chunky, with an aim to represent their quirky & characterful natures. 

Hubbit ste, caught the pottery bug whilst watching me create with clay.

He very quickly developed an interest in the wheel, and helps out in the studio when we are busy.

Hubbit is fabulous at building equipment for the studio- namely our extruder & clay trap sink (clever hubbit). 

In 2021 Clay Artist Hannah joined me in the studio delivering our Pottery classes & experiences.

Her passion for pottery rubs of on everyone around her.
Like me Hannah has many areas of clay she enjoys, but her huge passion is the potters wheel, and spends every spare hour throwing mud!
