About Cheryl Clipsham

Life in Uniondale these past 4 years in my Idyllic historic cottage is punctuated largely by my interest in pottery. A short walk up the road takes me to the work I love best.

I studied Art and English at Wits University, and taught for several years before discovering clay 30 years ago with my old friend and teacher Gavin Bell.

I joined Digby Hoets' studio 20 years ago once a week where I learned everything I know.

The "zen" of throwing, turning and glazing is a powerful and unique destresser, producing, by turns, delightful ceramic products, or disastrous flops when conditions go wrong!

For me it's a hobby, and thankfully don't need to earn my living, so in between travelling I play.

I will take orders but know that I am not a production potter, so patience is required!
