Ceramic mugs by Lois Thirkettle
Ceramic mugs

My Style

My pottery is mainly functional but with a ‘twist’.Mostly bowls, jugs and mugs etc, I also make large platters and decorative pieces. I use earthstone original and special fleck clay, firing to 1260 degrees stoneware and tend to focus on 3 glazes, a beautiful bright blue which has different qualities depending on the clay used, a duck egg blue and a matt white. I decorate mainly with ‘wax resist’.

My journey

Originally trained as a craft potter under John Dann and Martin Dines in Essex I have now returned to my first love of ceramics, especially throwing and decoration, at my studio in Diss, Norfolk. Visitors, by appointment, are always welcome.

Where you’ll find me

I regularly exhibit my work at craft fairs and events throughout Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire including Fire and Flux, St Benedicts St Norwich, Folk East, Ickworth House, Walberswick and Woodbridge. My studio and gallery in Diss is open by appointment throughout the year.
