What We Do
Hi I’m Pam, owner and ceramic artist, based here in lovely, Newton Abbot!
With a first class (hons) degree in Art & Design, specialising in Graphics and Illustration, I have been running my own design business for 14 years and have been creating in clay for over 5 years.
I love using typographical elements in my artwork, combining textures and exploring different glaze effects.
Some of my work is on display for you to see and buy.
I love helping others discover and explore their creative side and share the delights of working with clay.
At the Mint Creative Studio we run Pottery sessions and classes, Creative Workshops and showcase Artwork at our lovely studio in Devon Square, Newton Abbot, Devon.
