Oxford is back!

Date Posted: 27 Sep

This should be our 24th OCF, but for reasons we all know, it's our 23rd. Phew what a year.

Our cover image for 2021 is this stunning tsubo by Lisa Hammond. Lisa is an old hand at Oxford, but we really thought this vessel was too stunning not be used.

Lisa has been working out of Maze Hill Pottery in Greenwich, London for many years, producing her distinctive salt and soda wear aided by a series of 15 apprentices.

In 2016 Lisa was awarded an MBE in the 2016 birthday honours list for contributions to UK ceramics, which include the Adopt A Potter apprenticeship scheme. In 2017 she founded Clay College, Stoke, bringing a focus on practical training for young potters and revitalising the defunct Middleport Pottery, famous from the Great Pottery Throwdown.
