The Artist Potter who breathes life into Halistra Pottery is Neal Hately, whose spirited contemporary slipware designs are much sought after not only for their hard-wearing and serviceable qualities but also for their bold colours and brilliant glazes
Josie Walter makes tableware and cooking pots in earthenware clay, which are decorated with slips and coloured glazes. Most of the pots are thrown on a traditional momentum wheel, even though many of the finished shapes are oval or rectangular.
Prue Cooper makes unique slipware dishes that celebrate friendship, generosity and the sharing of simple pleasures. The simple press-moulded shapes are sometimes decorated with inscriptions, the overall design of the dish echoing the sense of the words.
