Persabus Pottery

We have our very own Pottery Studio on the farm. Our ceramics are all individually hand painted with unique and original designs reflecting the vibrant colours of the landscapes and seascapes, capturing the essence of island life. They are then glazed and fired on the farm in the pottery workshop. On sale we also have a small selection of watercolour prints and cards to compliment our ceramics.

The pottery is open all year round.

Winter opening hours:

Tuesday to Friday from 12 noon until 4pm and on Saturday from 12 noon until 3pm. Or visit our ONLINE SHOP 

As well as a wide selection of individually hand painted ceramics on sale we also offer pottery ‘take-aways’, for you to enjoy capturing your own memories and creativity onto pottery. The box comes with paints, brushes and your chosen ceramic bisque piece to paint. Get in touch to order one of our ‘takeaway’ pottery painting boxes, or pop along to the showroom to select your own piece in store where we have a wide selection available. We will glaze and fire your lovely creations for you.

Rosemary and Donald live onsite in the main farmhouse and are on hand to help with any questions you might have about your trip.
