Rockwell Pottery was set up in 2009 by Annie and Ian Evans as a retirement project. Both Annie and Ian come from creative backgrounds, Ian in graphics and Annie in book illustration. Pottery is their way of being creative without the commercial pressures.
The pottery studio is situated on the ground floor of their house in the rural town of Saffron Walden in North Essex, not far from Cambridge.
Their work can be found in local selected shops, galleries and exhibitions. From 2016 they will be opening their studio in July as part of the Cambridge Open Studios which will allow the public to meet Ian and Annie and to see how it is all done.
Ian and Annie are members of Anglian Potters and have been exhibiting with the group three times per year as well as taking part in many craft fairs, including the prestigious Art in Clay at Hatfield. For the past few years they have also opened their studio with the Saffron Walden Arts Trust and the Cambridge Open Studios.
Their pottery expresses the artists’ desire to celebrate form, colour and texture in handbuilt objects of a decorative or sculptural nature; evoking contemplative moods in response to life’s journeys.
Ian and Annie’s work is currently on show in “Gifted” in Thaxted and “Angela Reed” in Saffron Walden. Visitors to their studio are welcome by prior arrangement.
