New House Pottery

New House Pottery is a co-operative of three potters; Miles Bell, Fenella Stride and Chris Reynolds, who along with their students produce a range of ceramics in the heart of the Marshwood Vale in West Dorset. After moving from Symondsbury where the pottery was founded in the 1990s, we are now well-established in the idyllic setting of New House Farm, Broadoak. We have been joined in the yard by craftsmen Martin and Jon Hazell of ‘Made in the Vale’ who make baskets, spoons and turned-wood plates and bowls, and by Sophie Sharp of ‘Lupin Designs’ who specialises in hand-printed textile home-wares.

A range of ceramics

We produce a range of ceramics, from traditional earthenware domestic pottery, functional tableware thrown on the wheel, to hand-moulded plates and bowls, to more sculptural pieces, fired to stoneware.

Buying our work

We sell our work from our display area in the workshop as well as in a number of local shops including Washingpool Farm Shop, Cilla and Camilla, The West Bay Discovery Centre and regular markets in Bridport Arts Centre.

Learning pottery at New House Farm

We run regular classes four times a week in all aspects of ceramics and we currently have a lively and diverse bunch of students who we really enjoy teaching.

We also run one-off, tailor-made workshops and pottery parties by arrangement. Visitors are always welcome.
