studio work 1957-2000

With the closure of the Doulton Lambeth Studio, Agnete set up a workshop in her home in Acton. She bought a reasonable size electric kiln and acquired an industrial wheel, similar to the kind she had used at Bullers and Doultons.

Teaching at art colleges in and around London meant that she could use their firing facilities as well as her own.

During the late 50's. Agnete along with many fellow potters was actively involved in the establishment of the Craftsmen's Potters Association (CPA). It was here and at many other prestigious exhibitions and venues around Britain that her work was shown.
