Bridge Studio is set in a beautiful environment, with the Burry Pill flowing through the garden on its way out to the estuary. It attracts lovers of pots, potters and pottery students from all over the world. The place itself is very special and life at Bridge Pottery is absorbing and ever changing, a busy, demanding but fulfilling place to work. In 2010 the rebuild of the workshop was completed. It is now very well insulated and very light, a lovely space to work in. There are two making studios that easily open up to create one larger space, which is great for classes. We also have a clay room with pug mills and an extruder and a recently acquired electric kiln. Chris Jenkins has been working with me here since 2017.
The Gallery was designed by David Lea and is built of larch on oak stilts. It overlooks the Burry Pill and has received high acclaim in the architectural world.
Within five minutes walk of Bridge Pottery is The Brittania, an award-winning local pub serving good food. In Llanmadoc we have a community-run post office, shop and cafe.
Llanmadoc Hill and the nearby pine forests and dunes of Whitford Point are great for walks.
‘The stillness in which you cohabit and inhabit here takes me in the deepest place, i.e. the place of longing. So powerful, warm and welcoming, thank you.’ – Tony Donaghy
