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.” Duncan Shearer. We invite you to come and visit whenever you're passing through.
We're keen to share our knowledge and have started offering a range of classes. Our Term 1 classes are now posted up and start on the 13th February. We have an adult class on Tuesday evenings. a children’s class on Wednesday afternoons and a parent and child class on Wednesday evenings. The 2018 Weekend Workshop information is also posted and we're taking bookings for all the classes Have a look at our classes page and if you're interested then please give us a call or use the contact form.
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. Gallery hours: November to February, Thursday to Sunday - 10am to 5pm. Please call first on 07 8626974 to ensure we are home if you’re making a specific journey to see our gallery
