About us

Woburn Sands Clay

Nestled in the heart of Buckinghamshire, in the quaint village of Woburn Sands, our studio is more than just a place to work; it’s a cradle of creativity where the venerable art of ceramics breathes life.

Our Craft and Passion

With hands and hearts guided by the rich heritage of porcelain and stoneware clay, we, Peter and Gill White, delve into the alchemy of glazes. From Crystalline to Raku, our homemade glazes are a testament to our dedication to the craft.

Art Deco: A Lifelong Inspiration

Peter’s foray into engineering within the iconic Hoover Building has left a lasting impression, infusing the creations with the timeless elegance of Art Deco – its grace and geometric pristine lines.

Peter

Peter’s voyage from engineering marvels to artistic wonders began with a leap from a successful engineering company to the pursuit of a dream in 3D design and ceramics. This journey through academia culminated in a Masters Degree and a rewarding teaching career. Now retired from formal education, the studio represents a new chapter, one where Peter’s love for clay becomes tangible through each piece he crafts and every lesson he imparts in his workshops and classes.

Gill

Gill’s journey into the realm of art began with the pursuit of a degree in applied art.. Transitioning into the role of a secondary school teacher, she became a guide, shaping young minds with the same passion that fueled her artistic endeavors.

Upon retiring, Gill didn’t simply step back; instead, she gracefully pivoted toward her long-nurtured love for the creative and ceramics, enjoying the malleable nature of clay. Gill’s artistic journey continues to evolve, proving that retirement was not an end but a transition into boundless possibilities.
