* My Studio is located in part of Newcastle Arts Centre, Blackswan Courtyard off Westgate Road behind the shops on the front street, there are large wooden gates with ‘Black Swan’ written above between shop number 71 and 69, go through the gates into the courtyard and you will see the Pottery Studio


Studio Opening Hours – Please email to check when the studio is open.
The studio is always closed on Sundays and Mondays,
The studio/showroom opening times do vary.  – As I often do external workshops, commissions, teaching and exhibitions, etc,  I’m not always there, so if travelling some distance to save disappointment best  email first to check or to arrange a time when I will be in, many thanks. 


CAR PARKING – the best long stay is further up Westgate Road outside the Science/Discovery Museum in Blandford Square  , Outside my studio on Westgate Road there are short stay 1 hour parking spaces on a ticket meter but not many of them. Do not park in the ‘Loading Bays’ unless you want to risk being caught and fined.

Ordering / Enquiring  Every piece of my work comes out different from firing to firing, and hence each piece is by nature unique (see glazes page for more info) If you are interested in purchasing a piece (or just wish for further information) please e-mail me, and I can let you know what pieces I have in stock, the price, and a  photo, also take a look at the gallery page for a selection of items, some are for sale.

For commissions enquiries please email or to arrange an appointment.

Payments, I can accept payments by UK cheque, bank transfer or cash  .

Also see the Current Outlets page for where work is usually for sale.

The Pottery Studio in the Courtyard

My Studio and showroom  is located in an attractive courtyard with wild gardens,
that was once the courtyard of a Roman Milecastle some 1800 years ago,
and is now the courtyard of Newcastle Arts Centre.
