Artisans of 2021



Whimsical Pottery

Patty hails from Lancashire in the north of England where she grew up with stories of forest dwellers, witches, goblins, elves and fairies. Memories of this magical world have provided the inspiration and material to create her sculptures.

The magic continues as each lump of clay takes on its form and individual characteristics. Patty will often recognize a familiar face or detail from her past or present emerging while she works. With the help of her partner, using local rocks and timber on the property they now have a wonderful little studio set in a very peaceful bush setting.

Many sculptures have been placed in the surroundings to create a magical world. Recently semi-retired allows Patty greater production and time to conduct personal lessons and small “Play With Clay Workshops”, teaching either the basics or the more experienced hand-building techniques.
