Marieka trained in Devon and Surrey by the artists of Dartington Pottery. Many members of her family are potters both here and in the Netherlands, so it was inevitable that she would follow the same craft. After enjoying art at school she studied a short course at Dillington in Somerset which explored 'Country detail in watercolour'. This sparked her interest in nature and she is now developing her own style of one-off pieces, which are very finely detailed.

Donna came to Grayshott Pottery straight from school after studying Art & Design. She has a great deal of experience having worked in every pottery discipline throughout the factory from making and finishing to glazing and firing. Donna is fascinated by the 1940's and 1950's, and these influences are clearly evident in her work.
Giselle began working at the Pottery as a decorator over 30 years ago. Giselle thoroughly enjoys experimenting with the dynamic Dartington glazes and takes inspiration for many of her pieces from her memories of holidays by the coastline of Britain and her love of flowers.
