Our History

Richard & Jan Chapman, a husband and wife team, are the creative force behind Canterbury Pottery. Their quirky shop is found right in the centre of the historic city of Canterbury, in the shadow of the great cathedral. Their studio is at the back of the shop and this is where you will usually find them, hand making all sorts of ‘weird and wonderful’ pots.

Founded in 1963 by Betty Chapman, Richard’s mother, after she had graduated from the Royal College of Art, the pottery has been producing practical, dynamic and versatile pots for six decades. Over the years the pots have changed inline with changing fashions and lifestyles. Richard has spent the last forty years creating an envious repertoire of glazes, that in his practised hands interweave and merge to sumptuous effect.
