Selbourn Pottery was established by Robert Goldsmith in 1985 in the beautiful and historic Hampshire village of Selborne. All the work is hand thrown and turned stoneware. No machines or moulds are used. The glazes and pigments are made up from raw materials in the pottery and are fired in a gas kiln to over 1300° Celsius. This fuses both clay and glaze together in an impenetrable bond, giving the pottery both its brightness and its depth of colour. Although decorative, the pots have been designed to be used and are oven and dishwasher safe.
