Mary Clarke – the Burwash Potter – combines her love of animals and working with clay to create highly individual ceramic art. She also specialises in Raku Glazing which is a traditional method of glaze firing, linked to Japanese tea ceremonies. Mary takes commissions to make ceramic portraits of pet dogs and other animals. If you would like a ceramic figure of your favourite pet please contact her for a quote or visit her Etsy shop.
Mary runs weekly lessons in her Burwash High Street studio throughout the year. Each term runs for six weeks and the cost is £120 per term. This includes basic materials and firing of the work.
She offers one-off courses on introduction to pottery, garden art and hand-built functional ware such as teapots.
Mary also runs pottery parties for both adults and children.
