Douglas Fitch

Douglas Fitch is a slipware potter based in Scotland. Douglas draws great inspiration from the tradition of ‘English Country Pottery’ that provided basic, utilitarian wares to rural communities up until the beginning of the twentieth century. Originally based in Devon, Douglas Fitch’s clay is a blend of earthenwares from his birthplace, dug from rich seams that have been exploited by potters for centuries. His dishes and jugs are all one-off pieces, richly detailed as well as functional.

Maker's Quote

To start, I use red earthenware clay. I mix it with brick clay to give it a gritty texture using a pugmill, which blends the ingredients together and gives it a bit of structure. Before throwing, I ‘knead’ the clay, blending it all together. Subconsciously, I find the kneading process allows me to connect with the clay.
