Small batch pottery crafted with care by Ros Mayne-Caudwell.
I work in a variety of porcelain and stoneware clays, creating forms both beautiful and tactile. Primarily working on the potters’ wheel I also produce a small range of hand built forms and some cast decorative items from unique moulds made in-house. I am always experimenting, bringing in new technologies to blend with old techniques, and with a resin 3D printer can create bespoke tools and textures to make my work unique.
I have a long history in the arts having worked as a photographer and an artist for many years, but for the last 5 my focus has been ceramics, an enduring love nurtured since my school days. My varied arts experience means that I can bring techniques from other disciplines and incorporate them into my ceramics.
My Bristol studio began as a converted garage but I soon outgrew the space and work was recently completed on a dedicated pottery space with such luxuries as running water and natural light!
My favourite studio tool is of course my wheel, but a close runner up would be Peter the Franken-pugmill (so named as he’s in two different colours), making the clay reclaim process, if not enjoyable, at least not back breaking.
I’m very environmentally conscious and recycle as much as I possibly can, even thinking of ways to recycle broken pots into useful things (watch this space), and only use recycled or sustainable packaging.
