Artisans East Pottery Paint and Ink
Thursday 12 Oct 2017 - Tuesday 31 Oct 2017
Chris Soule is an English Potter making pottery in the European tradition:-
Making pots on the potters wheel is one of the most fantastic things you can do with your day. The next best thing is opening a glaze kiln, you never know you might find your perfect pot.
I started potting in 1973 and my first two customers were Harrods and Heals and for the next 16 years I designed and made pottery for department stores including Habitat.
After I sold the factory and design studio in the early 1990s and for the next 10 years I used what I had learnt to help others take design through to production and marketing.
Finally I came to Suffolk in 1998 where I now make finely thrown English Earthenware using a range of Reactive Glazes. Items include pieces for the table, kitchen and sometimes purely for display.
