Raphaela Ceramics

Totnes, United Kingdom

I Started Pottery at an Evening Class and From That First Class I Was Hooked. A Year Later I Started My First Apprenticeship With Local Potter Penny Simpson. I Spent 6 Months Working With Penny, Learning Everything From Hand Building and Glazing to How to Run a Studio.

After My Time There Was Finished I Felt I Wasn’t Ready to Start My Own Studio, So Kept My Eyes Open for a New Opportunity. I Was Lucky Enough to Know a Potter Who Was About to Open a Community Pottery in Dartington Who Needed a New Apprentice.

I Spent the Next Year as the Apprentice at Studio45, Which Filled in the Gaps and Gave Me the Experience I Needed to Start Up on My Own.

Once My Apprenticeship Was Over I Carried on Working at Studio45 as a Technician and Later a Teacher. I Was Then Asked to Manage the Studio, Which I Still Do. The Rest of My Time is Spent Making Pots From My Home Studio and Selling Through Various Outlets in Devon, Cornwall and Online.
