Potters’ Yard partners Liz Mathews and Frances Bingham return to Gabriel’s Wharf with another joyful collection of pottery and poetry, affordable original art and ideal Christmas presents, for a six-week season from mid-November to the year’s end.

The collection includes:

* hand-thrown and decorated pots with a contemporary twist including festive plates, bowls and jugs, as well as special pots for year-round use and pleasure

* artist’s books on wintery themes and local places

* lettering art on handmade paper and Thames driftwood, setting joyful poetry (and no cracker jokes)

* beautiful books from their micro-press, The Pottery Press

Liz is a studio potter and lettering artist, a selected member of the Crafts Council Directory of Makers, and her work is in public collections including the National Poetry Library and the National Library of Scotland. One of her artist’s books can be seen on permanent exhibition in the British Library’s Treasures Gallery.

Frances is a writer, poet and playwright whose most recent book is a biography, Valentine Ackland: A Transgressive Life, shortlisted for the Polari Prize, and she manages Potters’ Yard Arts in any time she has left over.

Liz and Frances set up their first studio together in 1986 and continue to fly the rainbow flag with pride.
