Rob Whelpton Ceramics

Posted by in New Products on June 29, 2017 . 0 Comments.

We have a wonderful selection of ceramic animals and birds, designed and hand-made by Rob Whelpton.

Rob trained at Dartington Pottery in Devon, and he and his wife have their own pottery in Wiltshire.

Rob produces a wide range of interesting designs, including his hand-built birds and animals. These are Raku fired in a kiln, which means they are fired very quickly, and as soon as the glaze has melted they are removed and put into sawdust. Rather a hot job!!  This results in stunning effects and colours, and a blackening of the clay from the smoke from the sawdust. It is a very exciting technique producing some fantastic results.

So you can see how each piece is therefore unique, and will add a bit of quirkiness to your home.
