Carmel Pottery
"Making pottery is all I have ever wanted to do.  I remember looking over the stable door at Woburn Pottery and soaking up the atmosphere.  Seeing the tools hanging up, gently coated in a fine red film, waiting to be used.  The wheels humming quietly, whilst craftsmen gently coaxed the clay into a delightful form.  The serenity and reverence that I gained from this is still strongly felt.  It took forty years before I had the chance to learn to pot.  I hope to inspire others to have a go and soak up the magical world of clay.  
If only for a few minutes."
Jacky creates functional pottery using the potters wheel and high fires in a gas reduction atmosphere using glazes that are handmade natural materials.  This results in unique colours, they may look similar but will never be the same.
Her studio is a static caravan in the garden, with terrific views across the Amman valley and onto Betws mountains.  This year she has a brand new showroom for you to browse around whilst enjoying a slice of handmade cake and a 'proper coffee' or tea.
Jacky gives lessons in how to throw on the wheel, with glazing and firing available for the more advanced pupils.  During the Open Studios week there will be a chance to 'have a go' on the wheel & watch a demonstration.
