Dave was fortunate enough to be taught by the very respected Studio Potter Derek Emms at North Staffordshire Polytechnic. Derek was known as the 'teapot makers teapot maker' and his inspiration can still be seen in all of Dave's work.

Dave prides himself on making a teapot that can be used. In Dave's words "there is nothing worse than using a teapot that doesn't work, where form and design take away from the functionality".

A good cup of tea starts with a teapot and drinking tea is a big part of Dave & Anouska's life so its important there are no drips!

We are passionate about everything we do, but for us the skill involved in making a great teapot, with the inspiration from a wonderful teacher makes our teapots really very special.

We make teapots from a 1 cup to an 18 cup!

There are so many elements to making a teapot, but worth every minute when you see that teapot come out of the kiln, ready to be poured......
