We The Tilehurst Pottery are Grant and Pelin Pratt, since 2003 have worked together to create beautiful and functional stoneware that is born of tradition with a contemporary edge. Designed and produced to be used everyday all our pieces carry the unapologetic mark of the maker and the incidentals of its own creative process . All fully functional , dishwasher , oven and microwave safe a combination of the strength of stoneware and the rewarding nature of handmade pottery.
All of our work is produced at our ‘micro’ pottery in Tilehurst an area which up until the late 60’s had a long history of clay and pottery manufacturer. Stoke sourced clay is transformed by hand on the potters wheel into our designs , finished in glazes we have developed over the years and fired in kilns fired with sustainably generated ‘green’ electricity.
Embracing the modern and cherising the past , the long proud ethic of the craftman and the eversearching mind of the artist/designer , hand skills and creative vision, respecting the ‘old ways’ exploring the ‘new ways’ and letting it all inform a tangible future for those to come. We hope to form a small part of this ethos.
Enjoy the Handcrafted.
