Welcome to the Pettersson Pottery gallery & workshop.


Louise Pettersson is an artist based at Alder Carr Farm in Suffolk, using ceramics to create beautiful but functional pieces. She makes her own moulds to slip cast shapes, decorating them using the techniques of sgraffito and wax resist. Her work is predominately inspired by the Suffolk countryside and creatures found within it. Her leatherwork is approached from a background of living history and folklore, the masks are fashioned to be used in plays and celebrations. Louise returned to set up her practice in Suffolk after graduating from BA Hons 3D Materials Practice at Brighton University. She moved her practice to Alder Carr Farm & set up the Pettersson Pottery in 2024 after taking the practice on from the renowned ceramicist of 36 years Paddy Peters, who retired in January 2024.


The Gallery also showcases the work of Leon & Jenny Pettersson who have been working together since 1983, Leon casts in earthenware creating beautifully decorated functional pieces & Jenny throws in stoneware, mixing her own glazes, her work has a striking yet delicate aesthetic. They have shown widely throughout Suffolk Exhibitions & Galleries and supply the National Trust. They have a reputation for impeccable craftsmanship & attention to detail.


The Gallery also hosts the work of Michel Pettersson, renowned Suffolk landscape fine art painter. 

His career started in Baker Street London as an illustrator, he later moved to Suffolk to set up his own studio.

Michael has held one man shows in the city of London, Covent Garden and Haste Gallery in Ipswich. One of his works was on show at the John Moore’s Liverpool Exhibition during the 1960’s and has exhibited at the Royal Institute of water colour Artists and at the Glyndebourne Festival.

He has worked alongside the Suffolk Wildlife Trust making maps of their reserves for the public.

Michael’s work has been widely sought after & collected by lovers of the East Anglian scene.


Together the gallery holds three generations of artists.
