The Chicken Run Studio
Stoneware pottery & Raku
Welcome to The Chicken Run Studio
Hi! I’m Alison Holmans. In the quiet surroundings of the chicken run, with the chickens for company and the ever-present birdsong, you will find my pottery studio. It makes a wonderful hideaway to bring my creations to life. The Chicken Run Studio really is my favourite place!
I create an eclectic mix of beautiful stoneware and Raku pottery, both wheel-thrown and hand-built. Stoneware is the most durable pottery, which makes it very functional, too. It is safe in the oven, freezer and dishwasher, and can withstand hot summers and cold winters outdoors. More ornamental, Raku pieces are truly unique. Born of fire, they take on a metallic finish that has a nature all of its own.
Creating is the art.
The properties of clay, heat and glaze influence that art.
Here is a small selection of some of my latest work. You can see examples of hand-built and wheel-thrown homeware, gardenware and raku. There is so much more to see! As you browse my website, I do hope that you enjoy my creations.
