Ceramics


Liz was tutored by John Slade in Cambridge before specialising in ceramics at Bishop Lonsdale College of Education, Derby.


She taught in Derby and Burton-on-Trent and was an early member of the Midland Potters Association.

Liz has exhibited at the Gladstone Pottery Museum Stoke-on-Trent, the Ruskin Gallery Sheffield, Burton Library, Long Eaton Town Hall and Gallery 61.

She works from home in Ambergate, Derbyshire, where she has an ‘Open Studio’ weekend before Christmas each year.

To visit her studio at other times telephone 01773 852009. Her stoneware pots are mostly thrown and functional - even the calligraphic wall plaques can be used as platters. Glazes, sometimes incorporating wood ash, are fired in an oxidising atmosphere to 1280°C.

They are usually quiet earthy colours, reflecting her love of the natural world.

Her fascination for fungi is portrayed in some of her work. A popular recent addition to her range of pots is the unusual yarn bowls, designed to keep your knitting wool from being chased by the cat.

Ever popular are her hanging posy pots - for fresh or dried flowers - and wine bottle coasters that stop those unsightly stains on the tablecloth.
