Sutton Pottery is a small "Open Studio" workshop in rural East Norfolk, established by Malcolm Flatman in 1977 in the Broadland village of Sutton, near Stalham. He makes a large range of "reduction" stoneware entirely by hand.
Malcolm also offers pottery lessons for those wishing to learn to throw pots on the potters wheel. A session of intensive tuition lasts 3 hours, and takes place on Summer weekday evenings, or on Winter Saturdays.
Two wheels are available, so two people can share the experience and the cost! Phone or e-mail for more details, to book tuition or buy a lesson gift voucher.
Visitors are welcome in the workshop to see whats going on, and to browse through the gallery area, where a large range of finished pottery is displayed.
Malcolm has developed an assortment of practical, affordable tableware and kitchenware in a wide variety of glaze colours which he blends himself in the interests of consistency. The product is dishwasher-safe and microwave-proof.
He also produces a multitude of more decorative pieces, including house name plates 'smokey dragon' incense burners, model tractors, cars, planes and spaceships. He creates distinctive lamps, such as churches, cottages, lighthouses and windmills and other commissions, plus some distinctive lamps. He also enjoys the challenge of making orders to customers' own ideas. The pottery carries the distinctive "windmill" symbol.
Malcolm is happy to liaise with couples in setting up wedding lists.
