Meet Alan and Billy

Alan Parris and Billy Byles are master potters at the Aylesford Pottery in Kent. Originally established by David Leach, in 1954, David later handed over the reins to Colin Pearson, who continued his work.

Alan and Billy took over in 1999, having worked for some of the biggest commercial potteries in the south-east, and soon found that, in addition to a demand for their work, they were increasingly being asked to teach. Alongside a busy and thriving commercial pottery, they now run courses throughout the year, catering for over 100 students of varying levels of experience.
