Studio Pottery

Studio pottery by Arthur Watson is displayed below. Arthur has been a professional potter and artist for the past 44 years, during which time he has developed his skills in a quest for excellence. The ceramics are thrown or hand-built in a stoneware clay body, which Arthur has formulated and blended himself to provide durability, and fired to vitrification point. Most of the items are functional, whilst possessing a sculptural individuality.

Examples of Arthur's ceramics are displayed below and his pottery is on sale on line at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/QualityStudioPottery. Due to the Coronavirus crisis, his retail gallery at The Old Station is closed to visitors until circumstances allow him to reopen. Meantime, please enjoy the exhibits displayed on this site and take a look at Arthur's throwing demonstration movies.
