Handmade country pottery
My interest & passion for country style pottery started some 35 years ago at The Dales pottery in Clapham North Yorkshire run by the skillfull large pot maker Peter Strong. The Dales Pottery had mineral rights on the North York moors where we dug a tonne of clay per week for processing into plastic clay ready for throwing on the wheel. The art of taking mother natures resources & turning it into usable vessels for use in & around the house or garden intrigued me which in turn lead to me buying my first potters wheel and Kiln. I spent around two years practising becoming a repetition potter & as the saying goes the rest is history.
Had my daughters 9th birthday party here today and the kids all loved it. Nothing was to much trouble and very friendly would highly recommend and great value.
Have been here for the last 2 pottery painting events.kids love it and great family fun. David and boys very friendly and accommodating. great to have in the town and these events for kids.
Five stars!!! Highly recommended!!! I purchased a beautiful, handmade, Halloween pumpkin, from Dave @ The Leap. Such fantastic quality, very original, with stunning artwork. I will treasure it for years to come. Thank you so much Dave! I love it!!! I can't wait to buy more of your work, and book in for some classes. 🙂
