Decorative objects and sculptural earthenware, using a variety of techniques and decorated with glazes and engobes (faïence).
Wheel thrown and occasionally altered stoneware, salt fired and wood ash glazed.

Based out of her garden studio in Oxfordshire, Leighan Thomas is a studio potter who produces mainly wheel thrown functional pieces. Her work has a simple aesthetic that focuses on functionality and form, with textures inspired by natural elements. She strives to produce work that is contemporary, modest, elegant, tactile and functional; easy to live with and a pleasure to use.
I create work addressing scale and proportion, juxtaposing surfaces with integrated grogs, creating tension between the form and its finish.
Lise’s work spans from functional ware to sculptural forms. Each piece is unique, and made from stoneware and porcelain clays.
Felicity is a ceramic artist specializing in animal sculptures, using a mixed media method. All my sculptures are individually hand sculpted and hand finished, making each piece unique.
