Denby’s craftsman potter Sean Flint will showcase his extraordinary skill set at this year’s The Exclusively Show.

Sean will be carrying out demonstrations at Exclusively’s Brand Showcase, showing off the traditional craft of creating pottery by throwing on a potter’s wheel. He will be using local Derbyshire clay which has been used to make Denby’s famous stoneware pottery for over 200 years.

Denby’s craftspeople still use many traditional hand-crafting techniques and time-honoured skills with each piece passing through at least twenty pairs of hands before it gets the Denby stamp of approval.

At Denby, Sean Flint works on production pieces, trains new potters and gives visitors to Denby Pottery Village the opportunity of trying a potter’s wheel – availability for a Throwing Experience is shown on Denby’s website but slots sell out quickly when they are released!

Exclusively’s marketing director, Steve Richardson says: “The Brand Showcase is always hugely popular, and this amazing opportunity to see the skills and craftsmanship which goes into Denby products will be an added draw.”

Exclusively regularly has over 140 companies and three hundred brands participating and attracts all the leading UK buyers in the categories it represents. Steve added, “The Exclusively team is holding a briefing webinar for all exhibitors on 28 February, which will be a really good chance for exhibitors to ensure that all the many opportunities are maximised.”
