“My ideas come from many sources including the traditions of pot making which use burnishing, African, Native American, Indian and Mediterranean cultures.  My interest in Ethnic textiles has influenced the surface decoration.”

Ceramics-by-Peter-Ilsley-at-Studiopottery.co.uk---Silver-on-tan crystalline vessel

Peter Ilsley ( 1932-2014 ) – sliver and tan crystalline glaze


Ilsley’s porcelain pots were sprayed and/or dipped with zinc silicate containing zinc and silica which are often but not always, “seeded” with titanium dioxide at 1300°centigrade to form the nuclei of the spectacular flowers which then develop organically in the glassy magma during a soak between 1100°c and a 1000°c on the cooling cycle lasting up to five hours. The peak temperature is critical – a few degrees too much will cause most of the glaze to run off the pot.

‘Ready for Rain’  –  Melanie Ferguson





Barbara Chadwick vase

“My pieces often incorporate highly decorative surfaces which are inspired by nature, graphic design and textiles but I can find inspiration anywhere really. I work both intuitively and intellectually, trying not to design too much ahead of time. Much of my current work reflects an ongoing fascination with collage.”
