David and Patricia Eeles joined the Shepherds Well Pottery in London in 1955 then moved to Mosterton, West Dorset in 1962.  Their sons, Benjamin and Simon Eeles carry on the family business, producing wood fired stoneware and porcelain fired in a three chambered climbing kiln.  Naked crackle and copper fumed raku complete the wide range of work. 

 

In 1990 both Benjamin and Simon became partners in the family pottery resulting in the name being changed from 'Shepherds Well Pottery' to 'The Eeles Family Pottery'.  They continued to work together until Patricia's retirement in 2005 and David's death in 2015.

 

We are thrilled to welcome Benjamin and Simon who will be joining us for our next exhibition - their father being instrumental in starting the Mill with the Dorset Craft Guild 33 years ago.
