WORKSHOPS FOR 2021

Planning is underway for our workshop schedule for 2021. Hopefully the impact of COVID 19 next year will be less than this year, but we will alter dates if that is what’s required. We will be updating the CLASSES page in late November.

Gallery

Gallery hours: November to February, Thursday to Sunday – 10am to 5pm. March to October, please phone to ensure we’re open.

Our little gallery was built with the idea of having a quiet place, away from the dust and mess of the studio environment. A neutral white space, softly lit that would display our work on a range of surfaces and help bring out the rich subtle qualities of the wood/soda surfaces. It has a range of constantly rotating stock as each kiln load is polished and displayed, then selections made and sent off to various galleries. Please call first on 07 8626974 to ensure we are home if you’re making a specific journey to see our gallery

Who We Are

Potters’ Charade Honey and Duncan Shearer are building their dream pottery that produces functional pots and sculptural work. “We’ve found our own quiet, beautiful piece of land and are building our pottery. We’ve built our wood kiln, little gallery and studio. We both make a range of work and really love the connection we have with our customers when they use our pots. Each piece is unique, hand made, fired in our wood kiln and is influenced by where we live” says Duncan Shearer. We invite you to come and visit whenever you’re passing through.
