New Website

Our intention - To make the website easy to use, clear with the minimum of fuss and, hopefully, both a useful resource and possibly a source of inspiration for our fellow potters and customers.

Welcome, if this is your first visit and please note that rather than just reproducing the manufacturers’ samples, we have undertaken the huge task of testing the products ourselves and all results have been included regardless of any imperfections. However, photos and colours should be used as a guide only and you should still carry out your own tests.

The Future - We intend to extend its usefulness with the addition of further technical information and tips and a page for selling secondhand equipment etc.

We would like to extend the 'Makers' page, to promote individual potters or potters' associations. We can include a link, brief description, an image and your name and contact details. In turn, we would ask you to link to Hesketh Potters Supplies from your website but there is no obligation to do so.

We would also like to extend the list of galleries (you do not have to sell ceramics) so please contact us for more information if you wish to include your gallery.

There are still a few products waiting to be tested so bear with us whilst we get these done and we will put them on the website just as soon as they are ready.

It would be helpful if you could let us know if you come across any problems navigating the site and also any positive feedback.

Newsletter – We send out a monthly Newsletter to inform you of Special Offers, New Products, news and general information so please subscribe for regular updates.
We will not be offended if you decide to unsubscribe.

"It's been hard work but we've had a lot of fun making this new website, testing and photographing the supplies but it could not have happened without my partner David Inness who set up the website and does all the technical and difficult bits, Ash Whiting who provides hosting for the site and without whose help we would not have 'gone live', my daughter Sara Vinall who helped me with copy and marketing ideas, my son Rob Vinall for his input with the graphics, my friend and fellow potter Sue Clancy for making tiles, testing and assisting with the photography and Peter Varnham for the Hesketh logo stamp which was beautifully made from wood and brass. Not forgetting my lovely Panasonic DMC-FZ28 Lumix camera!

A massive thank you for all your help, encouragement and continuing support!"
