Fiona May Ceramics
Hi, I’m Fi - the maker behind Fiona May Ceramics. I started throwing on my Dad’s wheel during the first lockdown in 2020 after being furloughed and moving back home to the Lake District from London. I then returned to London and started attending a shared pottery studio space in Tulse Hill where I learned from fellow makers in the studio before moving back up (again!) to the Lake District which is where I’m born and raised. As much as I love the buzz of the city, I’m definitely more at home in the country.
I’ve always been intrigued by ceramics, growing up close to Wetheriggs Pottery in the Eden Valley which, unfortunately, has since closed down. More recently, I started making myself, encouraged by my Dad’s enthusiasm for the craft, who’s taught me the foundations of what I know. I’ve honed my skill through time on the wheel but also with the advice of Mary Chapplehow of Interlude Ceramics and intensive throwing workshops at The Leach Pottery in St Ives.
