Handmade Pottery from Shaldon

Alison Miles Pottery


I live in the village of Shaldon, close to Teignmouth on the South West coast.

I am relatively new to the world of pottery, about 5 years making, developing and honing my skills.  I get much of my inspiration from views of my local surroundings.  My village is full of cottages which are all different shapes and sizes, many quirky, all different colours and this is what I try to emulate in my porcelain houses.

It is the same story with the little boats that I make.  Why make it plain when you can add vibrant colour and pattern, is what I say …I have realised that I absolutely love patterns.  I might see a piece of lace or some carved wood and I think ‘I wonder what that impression would look like in porcelain?’!!

I prefer to use porcelain as my medium as I find that a true depth of colour can be achieved.  Each piece is individual, I can’t make two the same!  Some creations change shape and warp in the kiln, but I believe this only adds to enhancing its uniqueness.
