John Collett Pottery functional ceramics – mugs, jugs, bowls, plates – hand thrown in North Bristol. I enjoy exploring the interaction of function and form, texture and colour.

Marbled pottery – two coloured clays thrown together on the wheel create distinctive ripples like the sea ebbing and flowing. Each pot is completely unique.

Pastel glazes on stoneware clays – the silk matt glaze contrasts with the natural stoneware clay.

After a career working with a team creating ceramics sold all over the world, designing and making small batches on my own feels like returning to my roots.
