About the Artists : James and Ingrid

Born and raised in London, James Hourigan worked for many years as a teacher and then

as a senior council officer overseeing services for children with special educational needs. James has always enjoyed sculpture  and stone carving classes but in 2020 a move to Bath gave him a chance to try new things. James had his first go on a pottery wheel two years ago and since then he has been honing his skills on the wheel and has been successfully selling his pottery at craft fairs and selected outlets in Bath.


Ingrid Johannesson enjoyed a wonderful teaching career for many years in Cape Town, South Africa, before relocating to the UK in 2005, to work as a nanny/tutor. 

She has made ceramic homeware objects and sculptures for many years.

Her bowls and mugs are thrown on the wheel and also hand built.

Ingrid's work is varied, with each unique sculpture created from her imagination. 

She also enjoys drawing with pen and ink, and dabbles in other crafts and photography too.

Ingrid's pieces are available at a few Bath outlets, as well as some craft markets in Bath.

Both James and Ingrid are inspired by nature.

They enjoy walks in the countryside, travel and food, as well as their new life in Bath, UK, having relocated from London in early 2020. Both have a zest for life and make the most of their free time to be creative and relax with clay and stone.
