Welcome to the  Eeles family Pottery home page

Eeles Pottery is taking part in this years Dorset Art Weeks
 The Eeles pottery will be having workshop tours and Raku firing demonstrations throughout Dorset Art Weeks, daily at 2pm. Come and experience the excitement of a red hot Raku pot being lifted from the kiln at temperatures of over one thousand degrees centigrade and placed onto sawdust that instantaneously combusts into an inferno of flames. While the pot is cooling down you will be given the chance to look behind the scenes with a workshop tour giving you all the history of the pottery and take in also take in one of the largest wood fired Kilns in the country. The Raku firing takes place outside so is weather dependable, the workshop tours will still take place.
The Pottery is located just above the Admiral Hood pub in the village of Mosterton between Crewkerne and Beaminster on the main road A3066. Open 10am - 5pm daily.

  It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of
David Eeles who passed away on 21st of September 2015 after a short illness. He was in the workshop only two days before going into hospital. Being true to one of his favourite sayings
"Potters don't retire they pot till they drop"

David and Patricia moved to Dorset in 1962 (Making 2012 their Golden anniversary year) from London & with their sons Benjamin and Simon are still working together in the West Dorset village of Mosterton. 
The pottery is set in an old 17th century coaching inn where the family work in partnership to produce an extensive range of pottery, mainly Stoneware with some Porcelain and Raku. The Stoneware and Porcelain is fired in a three chambered oriental type dragon kiln. The Raku is fired in a small cross draft wood fired kiln, lifted out with tongs and then flamed on sawdust. This gives the rainbow colours on the pots. The Raku is fired to 1000 degrees, the Stoneware and Porcelain to 1280 degrees centigrade. You can obtain more information on both kilns by clicking on the kiln button on the left. 
The pots can be seen on display in our gallery at Mosterton, for directions click on the map button on left.
