Rob Whelpton

Rob Whelpton throws and hand builds quirky designs, decorated with seaside and countryside images. He also produces a range of animals including dogs, hares and penguins.

All his pots are Raku fired, brightly coloured with slips and coloured glazes, and highlighted in gold. They are heated in the Raku kiln to a very high temperature, till the glazes melt, and then plunged into sawdust giving beautiful effects and exciting colours, with the distinctive blackening to the clay body. This is a technique that has been used for centuries but his work is very rooted in the present. His pots are instantly recognisable for their unique style.

Rob shares the studio and the business with his wife Vicky in the Wylye Valley, Wiltshire, but they each make their own pots.
