Tony Gant is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association and was a student of the late Gwilym Thomas at Hammersmith School of Art.

“We have been making stoneware pottery since 1961, and since 1968 in our present studio. Each pot is individually made, mainly on the wheel. We formulate our own clay bodies using Devon ball clays and glazes from basic raw materials, which give the iconic blue, yellow, green and brown finishes.

Firing in a gas kiln of our own design and build takes 17 hours to reach a temperature in excess of 1240°c. Cooling takes two days.”
