A DANISH potter has brought her work to Uppingham for her first UK exhibition.

The Goldmark Gallery is showing pieces by Anne Mette Hjortshoj until April 28.

Anne is a protege of experienced potter Phil Rogers and has developed an individual, relaxed style which belies the skill required to produce it.

The Goldmark Gallery show will display about 200 pieces of her work, ranging from large vases, cups and teapots to oval containers and teabowls.

Anne’s pots reflect her affinity with the natural surroundings of her rural Danish island, where she collects clay from a local beach or kaolin from the old quarry to use in slips and glazes.

The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday, 9.30am to 5.30pm, and Sunday and bank holidays from 2.30pm to 5.30pm. Entry is free. For more call 01572 821 424.
