Handknitted Pottery is run by Hugh Penney in rural County Durham, halfway between the famous cathedral city of Durham and the wild landscape of Weardale.
Hugh’s pottery is intended to be used around the house – mugs, bowls, teacups, noodle bowls, teapots, salad bowls, and also make some purely decorative items. Most of Hugh’s pottery is thrown on a wheel, but he does make some handbuilt pottery at his workshop near Durham where he also runs pottery making classes.
Most of the work is in stoneware but Hugh does create pieces in porcelain, and also earthenware, especially for pieces with decals (ceramic transfers) on.
