Pat Webber

Pat Webber’s pottery shouts out her love of animals and narrative. Her beautiful pot forms are classic, functional, but altered to feature her storytelling creatures. The glazes range from intense greens and turquoises to earthy wood fired, ash wrapped russets and terra cottas.

She is currently working on a series called The Hare and The Hound, which explores this unlikely friendship. These days Hare and Hound deliver pots down river and across the ocean in boats. The frogs are the potters, amongst other things.
