Welcome to my new blog

I am Chris Hawkins, a studio potter from Plymouth although I have migrated up the Tamar Valley to my current workshop on the banks of the Tamar at Gunnislake.
My workshop
I make raku fired handthrown ceramics and sell predominantly through galleries around the country and also at a few contemporary craft shows around the south of the country.

I was originally trained by Hugh West, now potting in La Borne, France. He trained me to be a production thrower and that attention to detail still applies to my work today.
I have just sent a recent delivery of work off to the Lander Gallery in Truro, Cornwall and am now finishing work for a new craft show at the Burghley Horse Trials next week.
