Description

Kirstie studied painting at Brighton University and went on to enjoy a career as a photographer and illustrator. She brifly encountered the potters wheel many years ago, and moving to the island in 2017, knew that this was exactly what she wanted to do. The downstairs loo was quickly converted into the smallest pottery on the island (and possibly the world) and she has never been more content. The couple were delighted to find that there is a real demand and support for hand-made crafts, and so Paul is designing a larger studio for her. Paul mixes all of the glazes form scratch, using raw ingredients and stains, making them a true artistic collaboration. Paul has always enjoyed making, historically using wood. He discoverd glass four years ago, and now often combines the two.
