Meet the Maker - Penn Boylan Ceramics
Meet Marazion local and potter, Penn Boylan - who will be at our Cornish Christmas Market
Please tell us a little bit about yourself
I am a potter living and working in Marazion, I have lived in Marazion for 25 years, the first 10 of which was on St Michael's Mount.
What can people expect to find on your stall?
On my stall you will find beautifully made pottery which is all handmade and hand painted.
What is your favourite part about the creation process?
Many potters will tell you that the most exciting part of the long slow process of making pots is when you open the kiln after the final glaze firing, only then does your work come alive!
What inspires you most
My inspiration comes from Cornwall itself.
Describe your creations in three words
Truly handmade pottery.
Where in Cornwall can you be found when not making and creating?
When I'm not in my pottery, you'll find me walking the coastal paths and beaches with my husband John and Cody the dog.
What is your favourite thing about Christmas in Cornwall?
Christmas in Cornwall is, for me, about family and friends, I enjoy the cosy, slower pace of the winter.
