Willow Pottery

Traditional ceramics made the small team at Willow Pottery, led by potter Matt Pasmore. Based just outside Bath in former farm outbuildings, the company was founded over 25 years ago and Matt took over in 2009. Crafted from terracotta clay from Stoke-on-Trent, the bowls are hand-thrown to tapered shapes and finished with glossy glazes.

Essential Forms with Matt Pasmore of Willow Pottery

Just north of Bath on Freezing Hill is Willow Pottery, in an outbuilding on an old farm that looks out over to Bristol and the Cotswolds. Beside the studio is a covered area where stacks of outdoor pots are exposed to the weather, developing a pleasing patina before they are sold. “The building used to house pigs. Farmers are diversifying a lot now – there are also carpenters and tree surgeons here,” says Matt Pasmore, who has led Willow Pottery since 2009, but has been orbiting the business much longer. As a teenager, he began working at the pottery on Saturdays. “I was never really involved in the throwing or making at the beginning,” he explains, instead packing kilns and helping out with odd jobs. “I never knew I was going to be a potter.”
