Ceramics are Charlie’s passion. He took up throwing (think The Great Pottery Throw Down) in 2016 and loved it so much that he has created a pottery studio in the coach house at Woodlands Farm Wales. He can generally be found in the pottery, when not compelled to work elsewhere on the Farm, working on his creations and honing his skills.
For Charlie the wheel is his preferred tool, although he loves to slab build too. His ambition is to create vessels which are beautiful in form and decorated with glazes he has created from base materials and fired in one of his two kilns (one gas, the other electric). His aim being to create unique pieces that are both useful and a joy to own.
Charlie now gives lessons on the wheel to glamping guests. He has two wheels and so can accommodate couples wanting to learn together. Do ask for details. He has started to sell his work and intends to sell more. His ceramics are currently available for use by our guests in The Stripy Bothy and Barn and in The Enclosure at Woodlands Farm.
