Born and bred in the Midlands, Nora Hadley currently lives in the South East of England. She works from her studio there, producing small batches of distinctive pottery.
Her love for art and ceramics goes back a long way to when she first saw a ‘real life potter’, at the age of 11.
She produces work on a potters wheel using stoneware clays.
Constantly refining ideas, her current work focuses on simplicity of form and flow, and the natural tactile nature of the medium.
To achieve this, she uses oxides, stains and countless blends of clay. The very nature of this process is both organic yet structured, and sees clays working in harmony with random overlapping shades. As a result, no two vessels are ever quite the same.
