Gallery

Gallery hours: November to April, Thursday to Sunday – 10am to 4pm. From May 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.
