A pottery production site, supporting local artists and artists in residence on site. The principles & philosophy at Commonage Pottery is as universal as possible, producing objects that are real & utilitarian. The subtlety of the evolvement of the finest materials shaped with intense skill can produce basic sensitivity. In a world where skills are being ignored & shunned, they believe in them, not only in the act of producing a better product but in the sheer joy of doing and becoming.
Nestled amongst a beautiful vineyard & lovely gardens with a self-tasting cellar door, Commonage Pottery is an ideal studio to immerse oneself amongst tranquil lessons and a collector's paradise. It's a space that showcases almost all styles of pottery. From Raku Pottery to wood-fired, reduction fired copper reds to crystalline glazes- it is a gallery where pottery is still the core approach. 

Echoing the ethos of production pottery, Gary Hambleton is busy producing his varied range of functional pottery & and to add experiential value to space. Japneet Keith, an Industrial designer, is successfully running classes along with supporting the production facility.
 
The gallery proudly represents local WA potters: Kim Potter, Gary Hambleton, Greg Crowe, Victoria Malone, Beverly Mcmohan, Sandra Vernonrose, Sue Jones, Japneet Keith, Kay Manolas, Hayley Bangham,  with strong support from Alison Brown for any occasion.

I just love the atmosphere and energy and friendly staff at Commonage Pottery, there is always something on offer, from pottery classes (with Japneet & Gary), art classes (Gerald Ashcroft Palette Knife) to encaustic (wax art)classes (Colin Pratt). The beautiful pottery that Gary Produces is top quality, I have such a selection of his pieces from vases to crockery and lamps. I enjoy using Gary's beautiful casserole dishes too, they work a treat and so easy to clean.

This is the best pottery in town - the team are friendly and highly professional. Not only can you participate in workshops with your friends - you also get to enjoy some amazing wine. Highly recommend and you'll love Japneet and Gary.

Commonage Pottery and Gallery is a beautiful creative space full of history and magic. So much to see and "feel" here. I did a couple of pottery lessons with Japneet which were so much fun. We made a square butter dish which sits proudly on my kitchen bench. Thank you Japneet! It was my parents who introduced me to Happs wine and pottery 20 years ago! Anyone visiting the South West needs to come and hang out here at least once in their life time :-)

I just want to say a huge thank you to Gary, you recreated my absolute favourite coffee mugs , Id purchased them from you about 30 years ago and then 6 months ago, I broke my final one!! Then one day I stumbled across you at happs winery and you set about making a new set, they turned out almost identical, Wow they are more than perfect!! So Thank you to the team for all the beautiful friendly service and for the clever Artist you are , thank you Gary Cheers Karen
