Mary Johnson Ceramics

made by hand, drawn from life

Cylinder pots are based on the material and structure of allotment sheds. They are assembled from pieces of thrown vessels which have been torn open or stacked on top of each other.Plants are drawn on directly using scraffitto or ‘scratcing’ with  a sharp knife.


I am teaching new adult leisure classes in ceramics. Pottery for beginners and improves, at Joseph Wright college in Derby. The class runs on Thursday evenings from 6.00 - 8.00 pm. Contact the college for enrolment if you want to join in. It is fun class with no assessments or pressure, just time to play with clay.
