 About us


POTTERS is a co-operative, founded in 1996, run as a not-for-profit organisation; by the members for the members. We have over twenty-five members, all based locally in the South West of England and South Wales and making special and unique handmade ceramics. 


Members are selected on the basis of their work being of a high standard of craftsmanship and adding something new to the range of work already available.  All our ceramics are designed and made by individual makers or businesses. 

All of our members have one thing in common: clay. It is truly amazing how one simple material can be used so diversely. From this humblest of materials, the variety of work produced is extraordinary. POTTERS are committed to informing the public about the art of working in clay and invite you to share in our passion for this very versatile and adaptable material. 

Together we work to promote and sell the best of British ceramics. POTTERS offers a friendly atmosphere in which to browse, with a diverse range of ceramics to enjoy and the opportunity to discuss how the work is designed and made. POTTERS is staffed by members whose work is on display, they take turns working in the shop, and they would love to tell you more about our passion for ceramics. By being closely involved in the running of the shop, we provide customers with a wealth of information based on our experience. 

POTTERS is a not-for-profit organisation which allows us to keep the operational costs to a minimum, so we are able to offer this exceptional range of work at competitive and reasonable prices. 

We welcome individual commissions, something many of our members are happy to do, do ask and we’ll see what we can do for you. 

You can also buy gift vouchers if you’re having trouble choosing, to be redeemed at a later date. You can reserve items or arrange for them to be stored for collection later. 

If you want to be kept informed of any exhibitions or events, you can contact us to go on our mailing list.

Throughout the year POTTERS invites guest artists to exhibit their work at our shop, have a look in the GUEST POTTER section for more info.
