I'm a 'small batch' potter and make by commission, unless you live locally to visit some of the lovely shops where I stock my pottery (see below)! If you would like to commission a piece or collection, please contact me directly. Below is my price list with photos for guidance. Each handthrown piece is unique and the natural glazes offer beautiful variation.
I make my wax burners with plants that reflect the season: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Pictured is a Hemlock wax burner, which I make in the winter. In winter months, I've also used holly and ivy; in the autumn, Japanese acer leaves. I'll be making spring and summer additions too! I'm also open to trying to create a special design that you may have in mind. To see more photos please visit my instagram or facebook page.
If you've conquered the Three Peaks Challenge, or just admire our beloved Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernside, you need one of these! Or maybe, the set of 3!
Mugs made for comfort, complete with finger trails and hand-pulled handles. Mugs pictured are glazed with Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone, Ribblehead Wood Ash and Settle Dock Ash.
Standard mugs imprinted with Lapsana comunis, or commonly called Nipple Wort, flower pods. They are a beautiful, delicate and yet hardy plant... and make exquisite impressions in the clay. The flower detail is glazed with Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone to make it POP, whilst the body is glazed with Whernside Iron Ochre Cream or Iron Ochre Blue (Iron Ochre Cream in photo shown).
For those who enjoy their lattés... or making latté art, this mug is the perfect shape to enjoy your favourite hot drink. Mug pictured glazed with Whernside Iron Ochre, Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone and Westgate Nettle Ash.
For those who like their morning coffee STRONG...or in pocket-size mugs. The espresso mugs are able to fit under most home espresso machines (tried and tested). I'm happy to customise the handles... Are you a one-finger or two-finger drinker? Mug pictured glazed with Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone and Whernside Iron Ochre Cream.
I incorporate Swaledale sheep wool into these unique mugs! Swaledale and Dalesbred sheep are iconic in the Yorkshire Dales, and I love being able to reflect their place here in some of my pottery. The texture of the wool is preserved in the clay. The mugs are glazed using combinations of Whernside Iron Ochre Blue and Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone.

I make the serving bowls in various shapes and sizes... wide and low, tall and deep... Please get in touch! Bowl in photo glazed with Whernside Iron Ochre, Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone and Westgate Nettle Ash.
Beakers bear the rings where my fingers have pulled up the clay. The beakers pictured are glazed with Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone, Ribblehead Wood Ash and Settle Dock Ash.
Vases are made to order.
These beehive-type ash trays were inspired by friends who run a pub. They were looking for ash trays that protect the ash from being blown about by the wind! Creative and practical, the ash trays come in 2 parts (the base and the beehive) and are safe to put through restaurant/pub dishwashers. Ash trays in photo are glazed with Dry Rigg Quarry Greywacke Gritstone.
During the summer months I make a few bigger pieces that are inspired by the internationally important Yorkshire Dales hay meadows. These meadows are species rich and support an abundance of flora and fauna, and are very carefully managed by farmers and other stewards of the land. Please get in touch if you are interested in purchasing or commissioning a piece.
Below is a list of local shops and galleries where you can find my pottery...
Visit lovely Gingerbugs and Co in Ingleton and find a wide range of gifts made by artists and makers from North Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire.
I've begun stocking some of my bigger ceramic pieces at Chapel Gallery in Hawes, a contemporary art gallery and café located in the heart of Wensleydale. The warm and welcoming Ellie offers work from local artists across the Dales, as well as craft workshops and a generous cup of coffee!
The Craftworkshop is nestled in beautiful Sedbergh, at the base of the Howgill Fells. This shop carries works by a range of talented artists and makers who live and work within 20 miles of the shop. (Be sure to make time to wander up into the fells while you're visiting!)
I always look forward to a visit to Town End Farm Shop in Airton. As we travel over the tops from Settle, we're often greeted by the characterful Highland Cows! The shop offers a wide range of local meats and produce, with a lovely gift shop upstairs (where you can find my pottery!). And if you've time to stop for a cuppa and cake, you can enjoy the tea room views of Malham Cove across the dale!
I have had the privilege of working with several local businesses to create collections of pottery that reflect the character and purpose of each business.
Since September 2018, I have been working with James and his brother Pete to design unique pottery to be enjoyed at Lay of the Land Café in Settle. They come complete with the Lay of the Land logo. Stop by the café and enjoy some exceptional coffee (and the best scones!) on my lovely pots! These can also be purchased in-shop.
I have paired up with the lovely Gemma of Tarn and Moon Teas to produce these contrasting 'Tarn and Moon Mugs'. The National Trust at Malham Tarn have granted me permission to forage for nettles and thistles to create two geographically unique glazes to put the Tarn into these moon mugs. Foraging for these invasive plants also helps to preserve their internationally important hay meadows. The mugs can be purchased through the Tarn and Moon website. (Photo credit to Gemma!)
I so enjoyed making Katherine of Retreat Remedies a collection of earthy and contrasting dinnerware, serving up natural foods that nourish and restore.
When Beccy asked if I could help in designing a business logo to sit on her ceremonial-type tea cups, I said YES. Her tea cups were made to enjoy those brief and beautiful moments of tea, sit well in the hand and are finished with a range of my natural Dales glazes.
Prices do NOT include postage costs, as these are customised for each order.
