Sylvia Glover Ceramics
About my work I like to make pots with softly curving forms and rich, tactile stoneware glazes. I have a fascination with scale - the miniature jugs and nested bowls that I make have become something of a signature. I also make practical tableware and other essentially usable pieces that people seem to enjoy picking up and handling. These too come in a range of sizes, so you can “try a mug on” and make sure it fits! The pieces are designed to be easy to live with: dishwasher- and microwave-proof as well as comfortable to hold and use.

About me As for me, I came to potting late, having spent far too long in IT, from programmer to IT manager. In 2004 I completed a foundation course at Stockport College, and in 2007 I graduated from MMU (now Manchester School of Art) with a BA in Three Dimensional Design and set up my own studio. A few years later I obtained a certificate for teaching in the life-long learning sector (PTLLS). Now potting is my main occupation, although I also do academic proof reading - and sing!

Sunlight catching an Argyll Blue pitcher and casting ripples onto white paper
I’m also endlessly fascinated with glazes: the colours, the textures, the three-dimensional layers of light deep under the surface... This chance photo shows what happened when sunlight caught the crystals in the glaze on an Argyll Blue pitcher and cast ripples of light through the shadow on white paper.
