About Us

Barrington Pottery - Simple Honest Pottery

Barrington Pottery - Established 2008.

Here at Barrington Pottery we love to make Traditional Hand Thrown Pottery, the type of pottery that your granny would have used, but our pots are designed for use in modern living.

"Simple Honest Pottery"

All of our pots are designed to be used in daily living, whether it be baking, cooking, eating or just having a cup of tea with friends, doing any of these things is enhanced if you're using our hand made pottery.

Our pottery not only functions well, it has soul. From the occasional finger or thumb print in the side of the pot or the dribble of slip down the side of a pancheon, these are the living breathing characteristics of each pot's own story.

As for us Paul Jessop & Marion Lewis, Paul is the potter and has been potting since the age of 12, he's totally self taught and has always been interested in making domestic pottery. Paul says "I just love to make things that are useful and to see them being used in kitchens is a real treat for me."

Marion is the brains behind the operation, she has designed the showroom and deals with all the other aspects required of running a small business, dealing with orders and keeping our 230 year old cottage up and running. With a Chocolate Labrador, two ducks and very shortly two chickens it certainly keeps her on her toes.

If you want to find out what's currently going on in our pottery and garden you should check out the blog, which has been running since 2008 and charts the progress of the pottery from the very early days.
