Husband and wife team Ken and Valerie Shelton make all their work by hand; each piece is individually crafted in their Cheshire studio.

Ken makes the pots from fine white earthenware. Pots thrown on the potter’s wheel are left to dry to a “leather hard” state and are then turned on the wheel, trimming away excess clay to produce the final shape and a smooth polished surface. The pots are then fired in the kiln to around 1100°C.
