About Barrington Pottery

About Us

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, 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 had been potting since the age of 12, he's totally self taught and has always been interested in making domestic pottery. Paul say's "I just love to make things that are useful and to see them being used in kitchens is a real treat for me." [read more]
