Christine Pedley

Christine is a long term resident of La Borne, arriving over 30 years ago after attending Harrow Art College. She had no intention of staying but the spell of La Borne took over and she has adapted to the French lifestyle. Christine worked for several other potters including a short apprenticeship with David Leach before setting up her own workshop in 1970. Soon after, she and her partner drove their 2CV across Europe and Asia to Japan where she worked for a while at Mashiko and regularly visited Shoji Hamada's pottery and the wood fired kilns.
