'I love the process of taking a lump of earth and transforming into something beautiful. The whole process can take up to three weeks - First it is thrown on the potters wheel, then left to dry until the clay is firm enough to trim, add a handle if necessary and carved into depending on the design. Then it is left until it's completely dry before it has it's first firing. I then make a decision on how to glaze the piece. Most of my pieces are dipped, usually into two different glazes to get some lovely, textural results. I find always find myself drawn to muted tones of blues, greys and whites. Then it goes into the kiln for it's final firing and... voila!'
We're Hilda's only stockist and slowly we're working towards getting her products online, currently they're only available in store due to limited stock. However, I can take orders over the telephone if you're not in the area and see something you fancy on our blog or Instagram account.
