Sea Blue Pottery
I love making pots, vases, bowls, jugs… anything useful for the home or garden, but with the added twist of a slightly quirky style, particularly when it comes to handles. I work from my home studio in the Hampshire countryside and my pots are both thrown on the wheel and hand-built too – and sometimes a combination of both techniques.
Having grown up on the south coast, I take inspiration from the sea when it comes to decorating my pots, predominantly using glazes in different hues of blue, although occasionally some other colours do get a look in. Spots and stripes are also recurring decorative themes.
Most of the time I work with stoneware clay which is fired to a very high temperature and is therefore quite robust and certainly dishwasher-safe. Garden pots are also frost-hardy.
Do please email if you have anything you’d like to ask or have something in mind you’d like me to make for you.
A small selection of my work can also be seen and bought at Alison Orchard Fine Art at Applegarth Farm, Grayshott, GU26 6JL www.alisonorchard.com
