Linton Pottery is owned and run by Emma Kiernan, who produces unique, handcrafted clay stoneware, which is glazed and then kiln fired. This is all made from a small home pottery studio, based in the beautiful village of Linton, Cambridge.
My hobby and love for ceramics has led me to start my own small business. I work from my studio and hand throw all of the clay I use on my potters wheel. Once handcrafted, it is then kiln fired to 1250C. I enjoy combining glazes and creating unique designs which transform the stoneware into individual pieces of work. Opening the kiln after each firing is a truly magical experience, and I never really know what exciting new colour creations I will find. Each item is totally unique. The majority of my pottery is made to be functional and for every day use. All of my stoneware pottery is safe to use in the dishwasher, oven and microwave (with exception to the sets of recycled glass coasters). The Gallery below shows just some of the various items of stoneware that I have created. I hope you like them?

I am thrilled to announce a very exciting collaboration with Sensory Philosphy, and their first ever Essential Oil candle.

Thanks to Holly, owner of "The Old Butchers" coffee shop in the High Street, Balsham, Cambridge. I now have the opportunity to supply a small selection of my pottery, which is available to purchase. The coffee shop also has a selection of other items and gifts available from other local artisan artists. Plus, you have the added bonus of being able to enjoy coffee and cake too, as well as purchase other produce. What could be better? Why not take a look, and pop over to The Old Butchers. I am sure Holly and her team would be pleased to see you. (10th October 2020)
Linton Pottery is now available in "Gallery Above" High Street, Linton, Cambridge. Thanks to gallery owner Rosemary Wellings, I have been lucky enough to supply a selection of pottery, which is now on sale. The building the gallery is in (by coincidence), used to be Linton Pottery over 40 years ago! Along with my pottery you can find some lovely gifts from artwork to sculpture and a variety of unique local artists work. It's certainly worth a visit!
