Product Details

Britta James | MEET THE MAKER

Britta James trained in Germany where the tradition of the journeyman years (Wanderjahre), which dates back to medieval times, is still alive. According to the custom, she travelled for three years and a day, visiting studios and potteries to work and learn. During these years, she gained a deep understanding of the cultural significance of the pots we use and developed her own techniques and style. After working for potters in France and New Zealand, she moved to England to work as a studio potter at The Leach Pottery in St Ives, Cornwall. This studio was founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, whose functional, everyday Standard Ware tableware is still thrown by hand and fired on the same original site by a team of highly skilled potters.

Alongside her work for the Leach Pottery, Britta has developed her own range of wheel-thrown kitchen and tableware. She decorates her pots while the clay is still wet and uses a variety of techniques – such as impressing, cutting and deforming – to create her unique collection. Her pots are bold and playful, yet remaining rooted in the formal language of traditional European pottery..
