Behind the work of Colin Kellam lies more than forty years of experience in the making of studio pottery. From the outset his intention has been to produce a range of domestic ware which would fulfil the criteria of practicability, durability and attractiveness at a reasonable price, each piece having its own individuality whilst remaining part of a cohesive whole. This ideal has been upheld and developed over a period of thirty years at the Lion Brewery. The creative input of the workforce has always been encouraged: people are at liberty to make their own experiments with form, glaze and decoration. Trials are fired in every kiln.

In recent years the popularity of farmyard creatures has been paramount on standard ware, whilst on larger individual pieces and commemorative items more unusual representations such as parrots, macaws, dragons, horses and crustaceans are featured. With a team of four decorators, all of whom are trained from the beginning in Japanese Sumi painting and are enjoined to study the historical sequence of decorative ceramic traditions of worldwide cultures, a varied and exuberant output results.
Alongside the basic domestic pottery, Colin pursues his personal interest in sculptural work; there are great demands for his larger-than-life birds - cockerels, geese, a variety of ducks, parrots - also for fish, lobsters and crabs and for more complex commissioned pieces such as tables, fountains, and bizarre, sometimes macabre objects.
