Charlotte Storrs makes functional stoneware, pots and dishes which can be used on a daily basis. She prefers to use muted, natural colours or white glaze. Decoration is limited to combing, faceting or using patterned ceramic rollers on the clay. Since visiting potters in Japan she likes to incorporate akebia vine in her work, imported from Japan.
Current Work and Availability
Domestic stoneware in white glaze with surface decoration. All pots and dishes are dishwasher and oven-proof, apart from those with akebia vine handles. Pots are fired to 1250 degrees in an electric kiln using green electricity.
Charlotte Storrs was born in Holland and studied languages at Utrecht University. After working as an interpreter and translator, she pursued her love of music and obtained a conservatory diploma for violin in The Hague. She came to Britain to study at the Guildhall School of Music.
She studied ceramics in Chichester before her children were born, and more recently in Oxford with Graham Hudson . She works from a well equipped pottery in her garden in Culham and sells through shops, galleries and her website.
