Fiona Kelly

After three years of evening classes at Goldsmiths’ College in London, Fiona studied part-time there in the Ceramics Department during 1981-3, concentrating on throwing with Lisa Hammond.

Following moving to Bournemouth, the births of her four daughters, and working in the tourism and construction industries, she is now able to devote more time to potting.

Fiona likes to make functional pottery for everyday use in the home. Most work is thrown on an electric wheel and decorated using a variety of slips and glazes to introduce colour. Recently she has started to use more relief decoration, often in conjunction with paper resist designs to bring another level of interest to the work, and has introduced a sculptural element through more modelled handles and lids. Finally the pots are fired to 1280 C in an electric kiln.

Since 2013 Fiona has been delighted to take over running the Creative Gallery in Wareham, Dorset. She has sold her work in Wareham for over 20 years, and is now able to extend a welcome to other ceramic exhibitors as guests within the Gallery. Please visit for more information.

She also sells her work at the Jill Rousseau Gallery in Bideford, St Alban Street Gallery in Weymouth, Everycloud Gallery in Dorcester and Nadder & Wylye in Southbourne, as well as attending a variety of events and county shows through the season.
