I had time in my studio this week which has been wonderful, as always steadying my mood. I couldn’t resist giving this large Wildflowers dish a flower crown. I use a special wooden bat to throw it as the base is too wide for my normal wheel. The flowers are all from one (rather pink) flower bed in the garden. Have a good weekend! #ceramicsofinstagram #potterslife #instapottery #instapotterylovers #handmadepottery #contemporaryceramics #contemporarycraft #handmadeceramics #wildflowers #wildflowermeadow #englishcountrygarden #countrygarden #gardenartist #shopsmall #shoplocal #inlovewithlocal #sevenoaks #shipbournecommon #kentpotters #artinjunekent #kentartist #madeinkent #designlovers #studiopottery #styleonmytable #handmadedish #stonewarepottery #handcrafted #designermakers #claylife

I have been making pouring bowls for a countrywide project for potters to #throwforthenhs to support NHS charities in the first of every month. My choice is the Royal Marsden Hospital which has been very important to our family and friends. Please DM me if you would like one to support this wonderful cause. Postage is £6 or you are welcome to come to collect it. #THROWfortheNHS #ceramicreview #Pottery #loveceramic #tableware #wheel thrown #clay #stoneware # bright colours #womenartists #contemporaryceramics #tableware #domesticpottery #CRemerging #ceramique #keramik #ceramics #feministart #kentpotters #canterbury #britishart #lilfordframing #LMSY2020CV # whitstablehorsebridge #covid19cadcreations #lockdownart @ceramicartdover #wheretoseebuyceramics.

Pouring bowls from this month’s throw for the NHS project. These ones are mostly sold but there will be some more to come out of the kiln this week. Prices range from £15-35.

Happy VE Day! I’m remembering, with humility, those who have given so much both recently in this war against an unseen foe and 75 years ago. The only recording of my father in law talking about his time as a fighter pilot is poignant. He talks about how fearful he was, always having ‘first’ experiences. As I look out at my beautiful family, I am counting my blessings. Oh, and I’ve updated my Etsy shop. It’s looking busier and better than ever. www.etsy.com/shop/mwrightceramics

This is a stoneware-fired (high temperature, impervious) full custom portrait mug that was commissioned recently. I'm just lightly going over the footring with a fine diamond disc to finish it, so it's nice and smooth. The dogs are a Patterdale and a shepherd dog cross that is something of a gentle giant. The owners have been in Albania so I try to make the scenery appropriate, I'm often asked to draw in special features that help to make the custom pottery even more personal and unique. 🐾 This mug was ordered from my webshop at olleypottery.com (direct link in my Instagram bio) to be a gift for someone special.

Well, here we go - with many other potters who will spend the first day of every month throwing for NHS Charities. I’m making pouring bowls today...various different sizes and colours from £15-50. There are a couple in the background. Please Dm me for details if you would like one.

Happy May Day! @cactiandwildflowerdesigned this vase and I made it. As you can see, it is perfect for her bouquet of spring flowers. It seems that good florists design good vases! DM her if you’re interested.

Time for some domestic pots. This one is/was for sale in Mosaic in Whitstable. Shernaz’s lovely little shop. I love this dolomite glaze with iron brushwork. It’s risky as it can drip dramatically just at the point after it’s best. This ruins the pot and the shelf and is DEEPLY DEPRESSING! Somehow I return to it’s beguiling beauty though and start the process all over again #THROWfortheNHS #clapfortheNHS #ceramicreview #Pottery #loveceramic #tableware #wheel thrown #clay #reduction #gasfired #stoneware #womenartists #contemporaryceramics #tableware #domesticpottery #CRemerging #ceramique #keramik #ceramics #feministart #kentpotters #canterbury #LMSY2020CV # whitstablehorsebridge #mosaic Whitstable

Mugshot Monday 🙂 The strange dreams continue... Boris Johnson, our Prime Minister, gave me a prescription for hayfever last night and shook my hand! 🤔 Back to the mugs, this is a full custom mug ordered through my webshop at olleypottery.com 🐾 I dust my custom mugs before final clear glaze and firing - I want to get as perfect a finsh as possible. Sometimes I'll wash them too. The clear glaze 'lifts' the colours and brings them to life. I use lead-free, food-safe glazes which I apply by dipping and fire to a temperature of either 1100°c or 1240°c. 🐾

Raku vessel ( can it be called a vessel if it can’t hold water I wonder). There must be another word for it that escapes me at the moment.

One of a series of porcelain bowls inscribed in a slip of clay from our garden in Malaysia.

The thing about wisteria flowers are that they hang downwards from the plant structure. This looks beautiful on the plant, but presents a few problems for the vase. I hope it looks good in my Wisteria jug, which is sold exclusively at the National Trust’s Knole House shop. Hmmm, that’s a problem as of course it’s shut right now. Let’s hope that it can open soon!

I really enjoyed using oxides and strains on these two stoneware pieces. The shapes didn't want to be glazed in the way I usually do. They had three firings, and I had to lay the taller one on its side to fit in the kiln. #ceramics #ceramicart #vessels #decorativebowl #imprintpottery #kentcraft #ceramicsofinstagram #ceramics #handbuilt #kentpotters #ceramicart #handmade #hythe

"Never trust a fella without a little dirt under his finger nails"... well mine always get a good scrubbing after I've been working with clay and the red terracotta clay is by far the worst - it's sticky and it's fine and it works its way deep into the grain of your hands and under those nails. I spent the morning reclaiming scraps of terracotta which involves a fair bit of kneeding and wedging to get the old clay back into workable condition. 🤔 Here I'm putting the final flourish to one of my custom mugs, though the clay is pure white. Whichever clay I'm using I need a white finish to illustrate on, so a red clay is coated in a white slip. Each gives a different look and I swing between favouring one or the other. 🙂 More weird and vivid dreams. Last night I was presenting designs to @claycollege which is now operating from a beautiful old wooden windmill 🙂

Here's the Jack Russell custom portrait mug I was working on the other day. It came out of the kiln and the colours looked great. I only had to glaze it and fire it one last time and it was ready for packing, wrapping and dispatching 🙂 Today I'm working on a custom jug and trying to improve my filming technique - I've actually moved my desk round 90° to catch better light - we'll see later if if it generates better results! 🙂

Happy Easter for Sunday! A burst of Spring colour in Wildflower jugs to celebrate. I popped out to the studio one evening this week and the air smelt so fresh & free of pollution. It transported me back 45 years to playing in a paddling pool in the garden where I grew up. Quite extraordinary on so many levels. #potterslife #ceramicsofinstagram #pottersofinstagram #instapottery #instapotterylovers #handmadepottery #contemporarydesign #loveceramic #kentpotters #buylocal #natureinthehome #potteryforall #claylove #pottery #designlovers #sevenoaks #sevenoaksmums #designermaker #studiopottery #designlovers #shopsmall #stonewarepottery #styleonmytable #ceramicsmagazine #englishcountrygarden #flowerpower #wildflowerart #buyhandmade #modernceramics #inlovewithlocal

Some good things have come out of the lock down. We’ve been lucky to be together and ok so far and have space at home and plenty to do. I know for many people life is much harder so I’m not complacent, and very grateful for what we have. A passion for clay really helps. These 2 bottles are fired very differently. One is raku fired and one fired in an electric kiln but they sit well together. There are so many possibilities . #Raku #smoke #fire #flames #danger #womenartists #canterburypotter #isolationart #absoluteceramics #Keramic #joy #massive excitement #feministart #kentpotters #britishart

There’s been so much time to make pots over the last few weeks. I’m lucky to be excited everyday with the possibilities of working with clay and a plentiful supply to keep me busy for a while.

The variation in colours is just one of the joys that thrills us potters every time we open a reduction kiln. These two were next to each other with the same glaze but one is flat and the other spangly. The tomatoes are also delicious and have lasted ages but probably only because of some ghastly chemical. #Pottery #loveceramic #tableware #wheel thrown #clay #stoneware # bright colours #womenartists #contemporaryceramics #tableware #domesticpottery #CRemerging #ceramique #keramik #ceramics #feministart #kentpotters #canterbury

My first moon jar. Didn’t get the maths quite right but not too bad and the raku firing of it helped so much! I don’t know HOW Jonathan got that one out of the kiln but he did and I’m soooo grateful. #Raku #smoke #fire #flames #danger #womenartists #canterburypotter #isolationart #absoluteceramics #Keramic #joy #massive excitement #feministart #kentpotters #britishart #LMSY2020CV

The only activity I have been able to do this week is gardening. Home schooling and a mind buzzing all over the place has meant that pottery has been at a distance. So impressed by those who’ve managed to keep it going! However, we now have a family schedule and I have had a really good nights sleep so I am very hopeful that it will be returning soon. These daffodils are from the garden, in a Wildflowers vase. I hope everyone out there is staying safe. #onedayatatime #gardeningmakesmehappy #gardeningforthesoul #daffodils #wildflowermehappy #daffodilsofinstagram #ceramicsofinstagram #pottersofinstagram #instapottery #handmadepottery #handmadepotteryvase #loveceramics #kentpotters #buylocal #shopsmall #sevenoaks #kent #handmadeuk #handcrafted #wheredesignlives #inlovewithlocal #studiopottery #desingermaker #designlovers #contemporaryceramics #handmadeceramics #natureinthehome #wheelthrownpottery #nothingisordinary #claylove

It’s been a good couple of weeks for raku in a sunny garden with Jonathan my kiln man. We’ve had a lot of fun.

It’s a bit blurry but I’ve had fun making these landscape pots, slabbing and throwing all in one. It’s cracked a bit but I’ll keep trying. Lovely to have time to experiment and lovely to have the sun shining while I do it. There are positives nestled within a very worrying week.

‘When the World wearies and Society ceases to satisfy, there is always the garden’. It’s from an embroidered piece that was in my Granny’s loo when I was little. I’m counting my blessings as I’m pretty sure I will need my garden while everyone is at home. Here is an English Ale jug (I made that up!) that I created at @the.ceramic.studio with @helenrondell ‘s thoughtful input. There was much debate about whether it should have two handles, or one. I’m really pleased with the marks I made that have had slip applied & scraped back. Thoughts welcome.... #sgraffito #englishjugs #slipwork #pottery #ceramicsmagazine #viburnum #cremerging #sevenoaks #kent #kentpotters #artinjune #buylocal #kilnfolk #shopsmall #ceramicsofinstagram #pottersofinstagram #instapottery #handmadepottery #designlovers #potterslife #handmadejug #artisan #inlovewithlocal #handmadeuk #britishmaker #englishgardenstyle #handmadepottery #countrygarden #studiopottery
