Roz Herrin was born in Bromley, Kent, England.
After 3 years at the School of Graphic Art in Bromley, England, aged 20 discovered clay at an evening class.
Spent 7 years in the studio of Avis Loshak, a potter based in Hawkshead, Northern England,-making stoneware fired in electric kiln.
Three seasons in Alain Bain’s studio in Greece- raku and stoneware, gas and wood-fired kiln.
Two courses in La Borne with Bottani- Dechaud, and with Eric Astoul: wood-firing
Since 1993 I have been living and working with Dominique Garet, a potter at La Borne.
We have three types of production:
In springtime, pieces for the garden, fired in a wood-burning double-chambered kiln, using salt-glazes. The rest of the year we make tableware either fired in a gas kiln, or in a wood-fired kiln, using salt for the glaze.
Our studio and shop are based in La Borne, open all year round to visitors, so come and see us!
