Alex Allpress Ceramics
Alex's inspiration comes from the Cambridgeshire Fens and his original ceramic art has a feel all of it's own from this unique studio setting. He aims to keep his work looking organic, so until the kiln door is opened you won't entirely be sure how it's going to look. He makes individual pieces and home-ware designs so there is something for everybody in all price ranges. "I want everyone to feel like they can come by and visit the studio and learn, buy, get inspired". Alex offers private lessons, small workshops, and takes commissions for home and outside pieces. Alex Allpress Ceramics Studio, Allpress Farms, Byall Fen Drove, Horseway, Chatteris PE16 6XQ. Working Hours: Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm. Visits, sales, commissions and lessons by appointment.
