Georgie Gardiner

All I have ever wanted to be in life is a potter (having discovered clay in the 90’s at college). I feel extremely lucky to have been able to achieve this. Most days I can be found in my garden studio surrounded by chaos – the Open Studios is a great incentive for a tidy up!

My work has changed over the years but the one consistent has been the way I decorate. I use a technique called paper resist as I really like the bold, graphic effect you can achieve with it. Each piece is decorated using paper that I cut by hand, building up the design as I go. This means no two pieces are ever exactly the same.

Last year’s open studios was the first time I had participated – I ended up posting a virtual tour on Instagram for people who were unable to attend – which actually worked brilliantly. I shall be offering the same this year too. Please contact me if you would like to visit at other times than those listed as like I said earlier – I’m usually here.
