Nancy Blokland Pottery

Functional pottery inspired by land and sea

Pottery and clay have been a part of my happy place since an art teacher gave me room and space to make a mess and just create when I was 12. I have tried to retire from the clay but it keeps calling me back.

I am inspired to make by the landscape, textures, plants, antique dishes and colour. I want to make the beauty of the garden year round,Pieces from Rhubarb leaves, maple leaves and , lily pads are some of the things I use in my work.

Not one piece of work is alike, and in the kiln, not one firing is the same as the last. I like that, just like humans.
