Our British art pottery selection includes artwork by artists that are dedicated to hand painting the ceramic form. They often select the shape they work with and apply the glazes to their chosen texture and finish as well as painting or sometimes drawing or marking the ware. There work can often be described as an original painting on a pot.
Art potters may work with modellers or studio potters to create a unique original shape or a unique hand thrown pot on which they will paint and apply glazes to reach the desired effect.
All pieces are marked by the art potter artist, some are signed and marked one off or trial, while some may be of a limited edition marking. All art potters are ceramic artists who have under gone a long period of training often at some of the design departments of the great names in Pottery manufacture. All are professional ceramic artists earning a living painting their unique art pottery designs.
