Our Gallery

Come and See What We Make

At Hot Pot Pottery we have a cosy, country gallery/shop which is where we offer our Pottery Painting Sessions, you can enjoy pre-ordered Food with your pottery experiences and take in the pottery we make here on-site.

All our pottery is for sale and is offered at realistic prices with something to suit all budgets. It is displayed informally on furniture rather than plinths and we encourage visitors to handle pottery before deciding what to buy!

NB: if we have no Pottery Trial Classes or Pottery Painting Sessions booked then I may be in the pottery studio. So if you would like to view the gallery just call me on 07974 983908 to see if I am around or to make an appointment.

Our Range

Our pottery is all handmade on-site and inspired by the natural woodland surroundings. Our pieces range from functional cups, goblets, plates, egg cups, jugs and vases to more experimental hand-built animals, thrown & constructed display pieces.

We have a range of finishes from standard stoneware glazes, to crater-glaze, smoke-fired pieces and lots of pieces made from mixing different clays and oxides together and decorating from within the wall of the piece rather than on the surface. We also have a range of pieces using local clay if you want to buy your own local momento of the beautiful Forest of Dean.

See below for a snapshot of what we have available to buy.

Commissions

We do take commissions but requirements must be in keeping with the style of what we can make!

Visiting our Gallery

If you are here for a pottery class or pottery painting session you can spend time browsing in the gallery but if you are visiting the area or a local and just want to take a look around but we are not running classes or sessions that day then (if we are here) we will be happy to show you around. Just give us a call: 07974 983908/01594 837943.

We are tucked down a quiet lane and in addition to our cafe style seating (for 22 people), we have sofas in front of our woodburner (for colder months) or seating in our pretty courtyard when it is hot.

We are dog friendly and have up to 8 private parking spaces in our courtyard (with further public parking available on the village green near the church).

We have free Wifi, we welcome children & have a treasure chest with toys in it!  Our gallery  and the toilets are also wheelchair accessible.

Payment

In terms of payment, we prefer CASH if possible as we are no longer allowed to share the cost of providing card payment facilities with customers.
