Welcome to Salsbury Ceramics

About Us

We work together from our home studio in Loughborough, Leicestershire, where we produce our colourful earthenware pottery and tiles.

Our training combines David’s sculpture and ceramics with Louise’s graphic design background. We both gained further experience in ceramics while working at the Fulham Pottery in London in the 1980s.

We set our first studio in London selling our work at Greenwich market and Merton Abbey Mills market. Through the 1990’s we started making for galleries and shops as well as selling at craft fairs and ceramics festivals.

We have moved home and workshop a few times over the past ten years, each time absorbing the influences of our surroundings – always strongly affecting our work.


Our pottery forms are simple yet functional and allow the decoration to be the main focus. I have developed a palette of ceramics colours that allow me to illustrate the surface using washes and line. My imagery is taken for the natural world around us.


My graphic design background has given me a strong sense of colour and surface pattern, The tiles I make use found objects from nature such as leaves and seed pods which are then pressed in to soft clay. I like to capture the discarded and overlooked to create a permanent record of its existence.
