to Gailey Pottery, the studios and showroom of potter Paul Gooderham.

The premises are based in the unique setting of the previously redundant village church of Gailey in South Staffordshire. The Victorian building has been extensively renovated and transformed into studios and showrooms where you will find a broad array of both Paul’s unique work along with a carefully chosen selection of British studio pottery featuring some of the country’s finest studio potters.

Paul Gooderham has seen his work sold throughout Britain whilst enjoying recognition in countries throughout the world. Each piece produced is hand crafted and unique, a quality appreciated by customers for almost four decades. It is this characteristic that has enabled him to succeed and to continue producing his work into the 21st century.

Paul’s influences are diverse and using traditional techniques he has developed a range of work predominantly recognisable by his use of natural line and lucid coloured glazes giving a striking essence of countryside imagery.

In recent years he has moved away from large batches of craft pottery to a more laid-back approach to his work. He now sees himself in the role as studio-potter; that is to say an individual artist/potter designing, firing and selling work direct to the public from the premises.

Always pleased to make new contacts and nurture fresh acquaintances, this website is here to raise awareness of Paul and his work, offer information and encourage people to visit his studio and experience a truly unique building where studio pottery is produced and a wealth of contemporary and traditional British is always available.
