pottery inspired by nature from my log cabin studio in Somerset

Deborah Sparks is the Thoughtful Potter based in Somerset, United Kingdom


I'm Deborah,


In March 2020 I realised my life long dream to set up my own pottery studio and The Thoughtful Potter was born.


I create small batch studio pottery inspired by the things I love; nature, my garden and the beautiful Somerset countryside where I live.
