Collection: Doug Fitch   1964 - present 

For over 20 years Doug Fitch lived and worked in the Devon countryside. He has now moved to Galloway in Scotland and lives and works with his potter wife, Hannah McAndrew. He works in red earthenware clay, the pots simply decorated, with appliqué decoration or sgrafitto, using a basic palette of traditional slips, made from natural raw materials.

Fitch draws influence from the work of the medieval potters of England and the subsequent tradition of slip decorated country pottery, that was prevalent in this country until the early twentieth century. The slipware platters on offer here are made using the moulds originally used by the great Michael Cardew at Wenford Bridge Pottery.
