The Pottery Shed is in Frampton Cotterell – 8 Miles from the centre of Bristol and 3 Miles from Bradley Stoke.
At Brenda’s Pottery Shed you are able to come and chill out after a long stressful day at work and experience the therapeutic effects working with clay will have on you. Here at my Pottery Studio, you will be able to make anything you want, in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Kiln is the Heart of any Pottery Studio…..Without a Kiln, you will have no Pottery. Once you created your Pottery pot, your Pottery will then stand on the shelf for 2-3 weeks to air dry, before going into the Kiln for the firing process.
The first firing is called a Bisque Firing where your Pottery changes properties from soil to stone. Once your Pottery has been Bisque Fired, your Pottery will then be ready to be Glazed. Once your Pottery has been glazed, your pots will then go into the Kiln for a second firing, called a Glaze Firing. Once your Pottery has undergone this process, your pots will then be ready to take home.
