What we do and where we show our work...................
We think its important to let our clients know that this website is not a selling website. We have a small studio /workshop that is not accessible for sales, so we use this website to give people a flavour of what we are about as creative people and also to let people know where we will be selling our pieces over the year.
Over the years we have always collected and saved a wide variety of materials from a wide variety of sources. This has sometimes been because we just love the article or piece for it's own sake but more often it has been because we see the potential to develop the material or artefact into another piece of design or fine art. This process is something that we both find inspirational and one that has stimulated our creative work for many years
Potfest over again this year and the MAF 2023 was in November, both a great success for us. We're now on the final run in at Altrincham market (see below) from November 28th through to Christmas Eve on the 24th December
We hope to see as many of our regular clients
as possible over those dates
Richard and Marjorie
Almost anything goes when it comes to selection of materials. From combing the beaches of the Wirral to searching around demolition yards to simply taking other people 'rubbish' and looking through it before it goes to the tip ! ' With their blessing we hasten to add !'
Often materials will stayed stored in the studio or in the cellar for months, even years before we get to use them or remember their
existence and how they can come together for a particular piece
Manchester Art Fair
The Manchester Art Fair is the outlet we use for our personal and combined, fine art, creative work. We work on a larger scale and the pieces we make are much more influenced by other factors a well as the core of our philosophy to do with environmental issues and the acceptance of the beauty of all natural things

Potfest in the Pens 2023
2nd -4th June 2023
A great three days and as always we had customers coming back to buy and to tell us how pleased they were with the things they have bought from us before and great they look outside and in a really great variety places, roll on 2024
An incredible retail development driven by the market and market hall developments. If anyone wants to see how a development in one area of a town can influence the surrounding area in a positive way then they need to look at the way the Market development has transformed the Altrincham area, and is still doing so after seven years when the market really opened .
It's a friendly market that has gone
back to the essential feel of what
markets used to be like
