Maze Hill Pottery



Lisa Hammond
My work embraces an extensive range of thrown functional ware for the preparation, cooking and serving of food. It is immensely important to me that this work is used in daily life. Alongside functional ware I have always made a range of work that is more individual and playful. The development of these pieces is a result of the time I spent in Japan, making, firing and exhibiting. My forms are strong, fluid and unfussy, and are intended to retain a suggestion of the soft plasticity of the clay.


Florian Gadsby
Florian was born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk in 1992. He attended a Rudolf Steiner School in London where clay was constantly used throughout his primary and secondary education. He continued ceramics as an examination subject and received throwing tuition from potter Caroline Hughes. Florian obtained a place on the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland's Ceramics Skills & Design Course. Upon finishing in 2014 he began his apprenticeship with Lisa Hammond.


Elvira Brown
Ellie started work as Lisa's apprentice in August 2012. Originally from Kyrgyzstan, she is a very productive part of the Maze Hill team, and a great support to Lisa with the Adopt a Potter work.
Darren Ellis
Apprenticed to Lisa from 2010 - 2012, Darren has now joined the throwing team at Maze Hill, and is also a valuable part of our teaching team. He is a trustee of Lisa's Adopt a Potter charitable trust.


Brigitte Colleaux
I want to make pots that can be used in the kitchen and remain affordable. I am influenced by traditional British wood fired pottery and slipware as well as Japanese stoneware, particularly Nanban ceramics which are very humble and modest, yet have a powerful presence.  I am interested in the play of light through tree canopies and would love to be able to reproduce the translucency of autumn foliage through my glazes.
