Paul Jessop

Barrington Pottery
My work is based upon the traditional old English country pottery. I love the plain simplicity of pots that can be used on a daily basis, I keep my designs and colours to a bare minimum.

At Barrington Pottery I hand throw all the pots on Electric wheels and turn them on my old kick wheel. I currently fire all my pots in my electric kilns, taking care to place them in the kiln so that they gain a blushing from a glazed pot sat very close to them. This gives the pots a look close to that of wood fired pots.

I make and a full range of domestic wares in a simple honest style that people can both use and enjoy. I have a blog that is proving to be very popular with over 5,000 hits per month, along with a web site, and also a workshop & showroom at Barrington Court, a National Trust property in Somerset.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
