You’re Never Too Old – Shaftesbury Potter Clare Copeley-Williams Starts Commercial Sales At 83

Shaftesbury potter and ceramist Clare Copeley-Williams has made a big decision – to sell her own work.

For years, she’s produced beautiful bone china bowls, plates and cups in her professional studio off Bimport for her own satisfaction or for friends and family. Clare received her diploma in 1980 but parenting got in the way of professional pottery. Now, aged 83, she’s decided she wants to sell her work.
