About the Artist / Potter

Clay is my chosen mode of artistic expression, fulfilling special requests and private commissions, it has led me along many and diverse paths of personal exploration and discovery. In the process this has enabled the acquisition of diverse skills and specialist skills such as mould making. Through my work, I have gained recognition internationally as an accomplished Potter, Ceramic Artist and Sculptress. I am also a qualified teacher.

Probably most noted for my highly collectable pie funnels popular with collectors worldwide. These I make from my own moulds which I have produced from my original master clay models. With over forty exclusive handmade designs, I am described by ‘The Times’ Newspapers as  the ‘Prima-Donna of Piebirds '

Displayed in your home my Pie birds will be a true "conversation piece" set to become treasures and will continually increase in value. A perfect gift for that "someone who has everything’ - " A truly sound investment.

My hand made pottery and ceramics have been featured on television, in many publications and magazines such as Collect It magazine, Art and Antiques,The Journal, Piebirds Unlimited,The Bonsai Potters Book , November issue of Lincolnshire Life Magazine 2019 and more recently on the big screen at United Nations meeting in Geneva.

The first of it’s kind in this area of Grimsby Lincolnshire.

An independent small business, is a fully equipped working pottery studio and gallery displaying an exclusive array of unique pottery and ceramic sculpture all handmade in small batches on the premises.

Aptly named ‘Clay Cottage’ the once boarded up old building has been transformed into an artist’s dream. Peterson Pottery Studio brings something different to Grimsby town, there is nothing quite like it in the area and we are NOT a ‘paint a pot’ shop!

Each piece for sale in the gallery showroom has been produced from start to finish, either thrown on the potter’s wheel or hand built using traditional techniques before being decorated by hand and finally fired twice in electric kilns. Small batches of Jugs, mugs, bowls, bells, one of a kind animals and sculptural figurines are created to ensure there is always something new for sale in the gallery. Truly unique gifts to treasure.

Sessions are also held with the potter’s wheel experience proving most popular, especially for an 9th anniversary surprise. Vouchers are available.
