John Huggins provides classes and courses for throwing on the potters wheel, to all levels wanting to learn to throw; from complete beginners to experienced throwers.
Established in 1979, John Huggins produced a large range of hand thrown and press moulded terracotta, for plants and gardens, exhibiting for many years at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
In recent years he has pulled back from production of traditional horticultural wares and now concentrates on limited editions of press moulded plant pots and garden ornaments, mostly in terracotta, some in stoneware. He uses oxides and coloured slips to highlight texture and surface features in the clay.
He hopes his Fern Pots, Sphere Planters, and Pebble Planters look and feel as if they have been unearthed after ages underground, and suggest the qualities of fossils, split rocks, and the rediscovery of early life.
