“Clay is used to make vases, but it is the emptiness they contain that makes them useful.” Laozi
Jo Edwards Ceramics
My love of ceramics started at 16 when I had an after school job hand painting Fine Bone China. Since then I have always had craft paints and some blank china at home.
My main job has been working with horses but I had a part time job at an interior designer's studio. There I learnt more painting skills and how to guild furniture.
After having my second child working with horses full time was impossible so I started a Paint Your Own pottery business. Teacup Designs still offers Local paint a pot parties and DIY kits to paint at home.
Anyway this meant I had a kiln! I have always wanted to learn to throw pottery on a wheel but for some reason to took a while to get round to it. But thank goodness I did because I am hooked.
I now have a studio at the bottom of my garden and there isn’t a day that I don’t go in there and I’m joined by my faithful Jack Russell’s Manuel and Hiccup.
