After studying sculpture and ceramics at Loughborough College Colin Kellam went as assistant to Marianne de Trey at Shinners Bridge Pottery, Dartington from 1960 to 1967. Over an 7 year period Colin helped produce the standard domestic stoneware of the pottery, whilst at the same time developing his highly individual style and firing the results in his own wood kiln.
In 1968 he set up his pottery at the Lion Brewery, Totnes, building a large oil burning kiln (now in its 4th decade). A comprehensive range is produced by Colin and his workforce, including oven-to-tableware, lampbases, garden pots, large decorated platters and Colin's much sought after and diverse bird, animal and fish sculptures.
All the work is hand-decorated using natural pigments over an ash glaze and fired to 1300°C. Experiments in form, colour and design are ongoing.

1960's - Wood fired Sculptural & Domestic Pots.
1970's - Blue & White with some decoration.
1980's - Floral.
1990;s - Birds Fish & Animals.
2000 to Present day - Large sculptural, Birds, Fish, Animals and Decorated pots. Also working closely with a factory in China to produce pottery to keep up with demand, mainly for the USA market.
