about

James & Tilla WatersWe set up our workshop in a fairly isolated part of Carmathenshire in 2002. We greatly value our rural setting, particularly the calm, quietness and space – which we share with our three daughters.

All of our work is thrown by James. We use various porcelain and stoneware clay bodies, all fired to a high temperature.

Tilla’s input is on the design, colour, decoration etc.

We are both Fine Art graduates and were both apprenticed to the potter, Rupert Spira.

Functional ware constitutes the majority of our work. We started making the non-functional cylindrical forms in 2011 through a desire to invest more individuality and intensity into a single work.

In 2011 we won the Wesley-Barrell Craft Award and in 2013 won the Homes and Gardens Design Award for Ceramics and Glass.
