Mary Chappelhow began a a degree course at Cumbria College of Art & Design (now known as the University of Cumbria) in 1997, and gained a first class honours degree in 2000. She then set up Interlude Ceramics, a gallery and workshop at the Rheged Discovery Centre, Penrith.
After moving amongst a couple of different gallery and workshop spaces, in 2011 Mary joined forces with Gwen Bainbridge and opened a new studio at Brougham Hall, Penrith. Here each artist creates their own individual work in their own space but share a gallery area which is open to the public. The Hall is a fortified 14th century house and a very interesting venue to visit, with a cafe and other businesses sharing the courtyard and activities occuring throughout the year.
Mary uses a variety stoneware and porcelain clays and a range of firing temperatures to create her range of decorative bowls, vases and table wares.
Prices range from £20 - £120
