Ask the Indie
Gerry and Lyn have been making pots for over 40 years and have established ourselves as one of the leading studio potteries in the North of England. We make a wide range of stoneware pottery – tableware, kitchenware, and gift items. Our studio ceramics comprise of more individual pieces which are sold in galleries throughout the region.
We also work with youth groups, schools and individuals who want to learn ceramics or improve on their techniques.
All Fangfoss pots are individually hand made and finished using glazes prepared at the pottery. They are fired to 1,280 degrees C in a gas kiln, which produces some unusual effects and colours in the glazes.
All pots are individually hand-made using stoneware clay, either on the wheel or by hand modelling, and finished using glazes developed by us.
The pots are fired twice – the second firing reaches 1280
degrees C. During this firing process the atmosphere in the gas kiln is “reduced” and this enhances the colour and effects of the glazes.
All the pottery is ovenproof, dishwasher and microwave safe.
For those up in Yorkshire, you may also be interested to know that Gerry and Lyn also kept busy organising the annual Fangfest arts festival for the past 20 years.
Dog and Hat
When thinking about items to bring into our independent brands general store, we started thinking about getting hold of some bespoke coffee cups.
We're very lucky to have such an amazing artisan pottery as Fangfoss Pottery just up the road from us.
We spoke with Gerry and Lyn about what we were looking for, and within a week they had come up with an amazing design and created a special blue glaze for us.
We're so happy to be able to showcase this amazing local pottery who has over 40 years of experience.
