Petra lives and has her studio in Rutland. She creates contemporary functional ceramics using traditional techniques and likes her pots to be simple in form.
She studied Creative Craft at Peterborough City College, completing the Level 4 NCFE Certificate in 2014. All of her work is wheel-thrown and fired to over 1200 degrees Celsius in an electric kiln. A maximum of two glaze colours are applied to underline the simplicity of form, often playing with the effect of the interaction between glazes used.
Petra sells her work through outlets in Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and now Warwickshire and is a member of Anglian Potters and Rutland Open Studios.

I was lucky enough to find myself at Fosse House Gallery a few weeks ago. The knowledgeable and friendly owner Shenac, has a wonderful eye and her creative space was packed full of delightful art and gifts. I couldn’t resist leaving without several packets of her delightful signature ‘bee’ cards. I will definitely be back.

Just to say a very big thank you for the excellent framing of our picture, and for all the helpful suggestions and ideas, and good advice – we really love the result! It looks like a totally new picture, it seems to have brought it to life. We will be back.

You have done a great job of framing our Dior vintage poster – after many years we are now about to enjoy it! Excellent Jonny!! Lovely gallery, we wish you every success.

Just had 2 pictures framed of my artwork and am SO pleased with how professional they now look! Jonny was so helpful and took time helping me choose the right frame & knew exactly what I wanted. I’m a novice at this, but Jonny made me feel not only great for such a good job he made on framing my work, but gave my confidence a bit of a boost! Definitely bringing my artwork here again. Thanks Jonny! See you soon! Give Sox a cuddle from me.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the Hockney print. It’s now hanging in the hall for all to see and looks fabulous.
