Sarah Holtby

My pottery and workshop is based at my home, in the small Wiltshire village of Winterbourne Stoke, near Stonehenge, just west on the A303. Most of my work is produced within my pottery; however, I also run workshops and events throughout the local area. Including Salisbury Museum, Stonehenge Visitor’s centre, Sarum Academy and Wilton shopping Village

 

Most of my work is thrown in Stoneware or white earthenware using an electric wheel. I also enjoy sculpting, slab building or coiling the clay to produce more unique work. I love creating finished pieces with subtle designs, inspired by nature. I appreciate the versatility of clay and seize any opportunity to explore its function and forms.

 

Over the years my career has varied widely, but never far from my mind has been my passion to create, whether to paint, sculpt or make and a strong to share this with others. I pursued my interest in clay from A level through to adult education in South London, then finally I worked as an apprentice in a working Wiltshire pottery. In 2015 I began working independently from home producing work for galleries, shows and running a variety of pottery workshops.

 

My mission is to create beautiful, useful things for the home and to pass on my enthusiasm to as many people as possible for working with clay!
