The Raku potter, Rob Sollis originated as a member of the famous Dartington Pottery Workshop in 1984. Raku is a spectacular and unpredictable process which involves snatching the pots from the kiln while they are still red hot and plunging them into sawdust. The sudden burst of flame and smoke imparts a characteristically beautiful finish, each pot is unique and impossible to copy.

Rob set up Fishacre Pottery in Littlehempston, near Totnes in Devon. He has since moved to the Alto Alentejo in Portugal and is back in the UK attending shows every summer, between the months of June and August.
