If you are looking for figures and pots that are useful, beautiful and have a strong Cumbrian connection, Clare Farley’s stonewares from Pinfold Pottery may be exactly right for you.

Known locally as “the hedgehog lady”, Clare also makes tactile garden planters of all sizes as well as cosy chickens, ducks, sheep and, more recently, human figures, all with a strong rustic character.

The stoneware hedghogs came first – from small babies of a couple of centimetres to giants of two feet – but I am a keen gardener and wanted to create outdoor planters that showed off my plants at their best.

My textured stonewares and earthy colours don’t overpower the plants and I often design a pot with a particular plant in mind.

The material itself and the firing process create pots that are relatively impervious to water and resilient to the extremes of weather and temperature – ideal for gardens but also kitchen window sills.

My work is still evolving – chickens and ducks have been popular recently and I am enjoying experimenting with human figures and other animals such as sheep.
