Welcome to Pinfold Pottery

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.

"I dig some of my clay from nearby
Berrier and use local wood ash in
my glazes. I can be inspired by
the Lakeland fells and Pennines
just by looking out of my studio
windows. I love to connect my
work to Cumbria and its amazing
landscapes, crafting and capturing
something simple and honest that
can be used and appreciated."
