The Clay House is the ceramic studio of Victoria Crompton and Cheryl Tully.
Victoria Crompton - Inspired by flora fauna and the natural world, I create hand built and slip cast work. I like to experiment with the balance of functional verses decorative. My slip cast mugs feature my wildlife pencil drawings and many of my pieces, such as the hares and birds, are unique one-offs as the decoration is a sponataneous reactive process. I aim to add a contemporary twist to a traditional subject in a delicate but fun way.
Cheryl Tully - I like to think of my tableware as sculpturally functional. It is robust enough for daily use with a sculpturally rustic edge. I also make indoor and outdoor sculptures, some functional and some decorative.
