About Donnas the Potter -
I have chosen to present my body of work as four main distinct and core categories.
The past 2 years has been challenging to say the least, with finding a suitable property, renovations and moving equipment in as well as trying to produce work at the same time. Now that I have a permanent base to work from with all my tools and equipment under one roof, I am now looking forward to starting 2016 off on the right foot and getting new work produced in my new studio.
About The Pottery Studio
A mammoth task but with the help and support of family and friends we have transformed the old boarded up place into a fully functional working pottery trading as Peterson Pottery Studio. Within the building, now officially named 'Clay Cottage' (a perfect name, you will agree for a Pottery) we also created a showroom filled with original pottery and sculpture for you to browse and buy.
Peterson Pottery Studio has brought something truly unique to Grimsby town. There is nothing quite like it in this area. Visitors will be able to watch the potter at work on the potter's wheel – a rare sight, before browsing the gallery shop where you will find an ever changing stock of handmade Jugs, mugs, bowls, bells, animals and figurines -
The doors finally opened on Wednesday 16th September 2015.
Tucked just around the corner from Freeman street at Wellington Street traffic lights in Grimsby. Next to Middletons Glass and close to Asda.

Clay is malleable and universal. Making pottery is time consuming and cannot be rushed. As a potter I am versatile and enjoy working on multiple projects at the same time. This works well for me as some of the sculptural pieces take weeks to dry.
All the pottery work is hand made on the premises either on the potter’s wheel or hand built using traditional techniques and craft skills before being decorated also by hand and finally fired in an electric kiln.
