Just five miles from historic Arundel Castle, Amberley Village Pottery sits in the gorgeous West Sussex of Amberley. The pottery is a great place to visit and to meet the potters: Caroline Seaton, her mother Enid and friend Barbara. Walk through the workroom, see the various stages of pottery making, and then browse the showroom where the finished pieces are displayed.
The Amberley Potters specialist in making beautiful country pottery for the home and table, from tea services to cookware and decorative pieces, with bespoke pieces made to order for weddings, births, christenings and other special occasions which deserve to be treasured. All pieces are dishwasher safe and the glazes can withstand the oven.
The clays come from Staffordshire and the potters create their own glazes. Natural pigments come from metal oxides and iron, creating stunning results.
If you're hoping to find something particular, it's best to call before you set out, and do allow up to eight weeks for commissioned pieces.
The pottery is also a great place to buy artist Brian Murray's Amberley village watercolours.
