Menear Ceramics are Keith and Debra Menear who specialise in individual contemporary pottery.
The work of the pottery comprises glazed pieces designed to make full use of the surface decoration, together with garden ware which complement the form of the alpine and succulent plants that accompany the pieces.
Dr Keith Menear has spent his professional career as a Chemist in the pharmaceutical sector. Twenty years ago he was introduced to pottery by his wife, since then his hobby has become a full time preoccupation. His interests lie particularly with glaze chemistry on stoneware and raku clay bodies.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a committee member of the Southern Ceramic Group.
Debra Menear is a trained Chemist and IT professional and has also trained in horticulture at Brinsbury Agricultural College in West Sussex. Her work reflects her love of plants with the focus of the pieces in high fire terracotta which complement the plants they house.
She is a member of the Royal Horticultural Society and the Southern Ceramic Group.
