david sopwith woodwork
David has been producing wooden planters and vessels for Eartha for two years now, from his studio in Cardiff.
“Space, movement, time, the figure is central to my work developing my work. The body moves through space every day, and within my work I try to capture a moment. Not in a dictatorial fashion, but in a way that creates options to expand an idea; open ended and grows a sense of progression in the development of a piece. The evolution of my work develops through all manner of processes or through just viewing an object, or a passing that sparks an idea. Taking consideration of how that moment moves through its entity, developing consideration of the line, shape and tone of the human form in that moment.
With a strong emphasis on using sustainable materials I allow the forms to develop their own narrative as I work, helping to conclude a moment in time that relates to where the body has passed. All the materials used come from sustainable sources and reclaimed materials, all from my locality. I like to use both shape and colour to emphasis the quality of the materials used. Using both traditional and modern woodworking techniques my work ranges in decorative and practical homeware.”

simone potter ceramics
Simone Potter hand makes pottery on the wheel from her studio and has been producing bespoke planters for Eartha from the beginning of the venture.
“My work explores simple forms and their function as elegant ceramics for every day use.
I work in light and dark stoneware and enjoy mixing different clays to create fired stoneware bodies that echo the tone and texture of spalted wood or striated rock.
I am fascinated by the overlap of geology, physics and chemistry with pottery, in particular the physical and chemical constituents of clay bodies and glazes and their behaviour during the firing process.”
jack welbourne ceramics
Jack Welbourne is Cardiff based Ceramicist, based at Fox Lane Studios, just outside of the city centre.
“I am informed by traditional techniques and values, in particular eastern ideas brought to the UK by Bernard Leach. Whilst working with this framework I am always looking to add a contemporary feel to my work though mark-making, form and application of glazes. I also work with locally sourced materials including clays and wood ash that I collect from the urban landscape I occupy.
Hand made objects have the potential to capture an energy, freshness and elemental tangibility that have been eroded in our society for years. I believe that your home can be a living work of art if you want it to be. With handmade pottery not only fulfilling a functional role but enriching and exciting with every use.”
