Bridie Maddocks

Bridie Maddocks started pottery at an evening class, and from then on knew she wanted to pursue it further and was hooked. A few years later she started a two year apprenticeship with Dartmoor based potters, Nic Collins and Sabine Nemet.

It was during this time she found the love of wood firing. The physical challenges that go with preparing the materials, chopping and stacking the wood, the heat from the kiln and the coming together of friends and family in which to fire it are part of the enjoyment of the making process.

After her apprenticeship ended Bridie Maddocks set up her own workshop on the north coast of Devon and built her wood fired, down draught kiln. She now makes in Penryn but still fires back in Devon, three times a year.
