Penny Simpson started making pots whilst living in Japan in the 1970s.
She was captivated by Japanese food and its presentation colours and textures of pots chosen to complement the food and the season.
She explored many of the pottery-making areas of Japan and is the author of The Japanese Pottery Handbook (Kodansha 1979).
Opening times are:
MONDAY - FRIDAY 9.30 - 5.00
SATURDAY 10.00 - 12.00
SUNDAY - Closed.
After training at Dartington Pottery, she set up her own workshop in Devon, moving to her present workshop in Moretonhampstead seven years ago.
Her continuing love of food and cooking has maintained her interest in making pots for everyday use. Also an interest in interior design has led to developing a range of tiles. She recently designed a range of tiles for sale in Homebase stores and often works with private clients on decoration schemes for kitchens and bathrooms. Public commissions include tile panels as part of the refurbishment of Minehead Hospital.
Penny is a member of the Craft Potters Association and the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. As well as selling from her own showroom, she exhibits widely in the UK and abroad.
