Jennie Hale, Jennie (Longham Pottery) (Coryton, UK)
(Hale originally made both raku and saltglaze animals. All her work
was figurative, but the raku was hand-built and sculptural, while the
saltglaze pieces were thrown and modelled "semi-domestic ware." Since
1986 she has worked exclusively in raku" which is built up from coils
on a slab base.) (A lovely, well-made, highly-individual website.)

Jonathan Barrett-Danes (Liss, Hampshire, England, UK)
(The son of Alan Barrett-Danes, Jonathan is at least the fourth
generation of his family to work in clay. He makes humourous ceramic
animal figures: large "frost-proof" pigs, bulls, sheep and chickens for
the garden, fired to 1260 Celcius, and glazed earthenware horses for in
home adornment.)
