About Vanessa

Or should we say... About Vanessa, Anna, Sarah, Luci and Hepzi! We make luxurious ceramics that merge deftly constructed earthenware clay with graphic textile prints, traditional enamel decals and shimmering metallic lustre, all with our own fair hands in Vanessa's Georgian studio in the heart of Dorset. Take a peek at our VCHQ insta story or read on to Meet The Team...


Vanessa graduated from Bath Spa University in 2004 and set up her studio the year after. She now exhibits in galleries across the UK and further afield, see the Stockists page for info. Vanessa is also the proprietor of the Pottery Parlour, which provides space for you to transform your imagination into clay creations.


Anna is a proper potter with serious skills. She began in Australia with a production training firmly based in the Japanese and Leach studio traditions and went on to train with John Leach back here at home, at Mulcheney pottery in Somerset. Vanessa and Anna met at a festival; Anna started doing some part- time work for Vanessa and the rest, as they say, is history...


Sarah was our first ever apprentice and now two years on she is a fully- fledged member of the team. Her talents are many and varied and range from ace studio technician to chief tidier to assistant maker and decorator with a bit of pottery teaching thrown in too!


Hepzi is our social media guru and also head Show Girl accompanying Vanessa on adventures far and wide promoting our wares.


Luci is our office legend and is responsible for the impeccable customer service that we offer as well as packing all of your orders beautifully... pic to follow soon!
