Hello, thanks for visiting.
My name is Louise Atkinson and I'm a potter. I loved art at school but I didn't really get into it as an adult until I went to pottery evening classes some fifteen years later. I began with pinch pots and slab work, some sculpture, and then moved on to throwing.
I love decorating and I started making the head pots when a friend came home from holiday in Italy having seen them there. After that I discovered medieval English slipware and it was love at first sight. I've made nothing else since, focussing on making my own English slipware with a modern narrative twist.
