Madeleine and Philip trained at The Medway College of Design in the early 70's and then opened up their Country Pottery in Pembrokeshire in 1973. Philip has now retired and Madeleine has now been joined in the studio by Paul Webb.
They make lively, strong, functional pots and also large interesting slabbed dishes.Madeleine decorates most of the work with bold Chinese brush strokes using glazes ranging from deep copper reds and mauves to exciting blues and greens. The clays used are stoneware and porcelain. All their work is fired by gas in a reduction atmosphere.
Wolfscastle Pottery is situated in the St. David's Peninsula, an unspoilt and beautiful corner of Wales. It has a mild sunny climate, spectacular coastal scenery. A profusion of wild flowers, wildlife, friendly people and a leisurely pace of life. This has all greatly influenced their work.
They spent many years running residential courses for students from all over the world, but now they have opened up their studio to daily customers and holiday visitors to Pembrokeshire wanting to try their hand and be creative. See FACILITIES.
