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 been something that I have thoroughly enjoyed around my normal career as a palliative care nurse. It means, I can ensure a consistent good work, life balance and it gives me a sanctuary to develop my creative skills with the pottery. It has also led me to start my own small business in something I get so much pleasure from.
I work from my home studio and hand throw all of the clay I use on my potters wheel. Once handcrafted, it is then bisque fired to 950ºC, glaze is then applied, and the pieces kiln fired again to 1250ºC.
I just love 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 everyday 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?

Thanks to Holly, owner of "The Old Butchers" coffee shop in the High Street, Balsham, Cambridge. I now have the opportunity to supply a selection of my pottery, which is available to purchase. The coffee shop also has a fabulous range 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! Plus keep an eye out for details on regular new artists that will be displaying their work in the gallery over the coming months.

I have seen an increasing interest for the use of my pottery as accessories and props for photo shoots in food photography and interior design. If you have any interest or require any stoneware items to purchase for use in photography, please feel free to contact me or to discuss your requirements further.
