Collection: Margaret Brampton : Potter : Ogmore

"I make traditional wheel-thrown slipware..... I first encountered pottery when I was eleven years old when my parents took me to Ewenny Pottery.

Seeing the basic material ‘earth’ being manipulated on the wheel and then being transformed into pots was like alchemy. The potter, seeing I was spellbound asked me if I would like a go. Being shy I declined but really regretted it. The opportunity presented itself again when I went to Cardiff College of Education and pottery was one of the options. I knew it was for me and went on to gain a B.Ed in ceramics.

About twenty years ago I became interested in slipware and switched from stoneware to earthenware. I am absorbed by the capacity to use the pot's surface to draw on. I decorate my work with themes drawn from medieval manuscripts and flora and fauna."
