Philip Wood

Philip Wood has been making pots for over 40 years. Specialising in earthernware, he creates handmade pieces to enhance the lives of those around them.

Making from his workshop in Somerset Philip’s work is distinctive and charming. Press-moulding decoration with the use of sprigs, he often applies animals such as birds, hares and cows to leather hard pots, creating a unique English countryside appeal.

“I like the individual qualities that pots have: the connections they make to people and to the past, to process, to skill, to ingenuity, and to the enjoyment of living. I believe earthenware ought to be lauded as the most important of the ceramic materials.” – Philip Wood
