General Pottery was originally established by Gwen to support the Canterbury potting community.
General Pottery supplies clay, glaze materials, ceramic stains and underglazes, and pottery tools, along with a little bit of advice, and lots of inspiration. As of May 2020 we also provide a ceramics teaching studio and a firing service.
General Pottery aims to:
- Supply quality tools and materials.
- Source tools and materials locally or nationally where possible.
- Limit the use of plastic in ceramics.
Gwen has been working with clay since the early 2000s and teaches ceramics classes at Risingholme Community Centre. She has a Diplomia in Ceramic Art, a member of Ceramics NZ, and you might find one or two pieces of her work in Form Gallery, Christchurch.
