Who We Are

Hi I’m Pam, owner and ceramic artist, based here in lovely, Newton Abbot!

With a first class (hons) degree in Art & Design, specialising in Graphics and Illustration, I have been running my own design business for 14 years and have been creating in clay for over 5 years.
I love using typographical elements in my artwork, combining textures and exploring different glaze effects. Some of my work is on display for you to see
and buy. You're welcome to call in when I'm working to see what I do!

I love helping others discover and explore their creative side and share the delights of working with clay.

At the Mint Creative Studio we run 'Have a Go' Pottery sessions, Creative Workshops and showcase other artists' original work at our lovely studio
in Devon Square, Newton Abbot, Devon.
Do call in and see us when you're passing!

What Others Say

Mint Creative Studio is a friendly new pottery studio in Devon Square, owned by ceramic artist Pam Neaves.
Pam has a first-class degree in art and design, specialising in graphics and illustration. She’s been running her own design business for 14 years and creating in clay for more than five years. And now she’s brought her skills to Newton Abbot town centre.

As well as Pam’s work on display and to buy she runs ‘have a go’ pottery sessions three evenings a week; ‘have a go’ oil painting classes with local artist Ewan Walton; and ‘creative indulgence’ events for special occasions, combining a bit of pottery with cream, savoury or high tea at the vintage tea room Indulgence next door. She also has gallery space for local artists to display their talents.
Her pottery sessions have been incredibly successful and spaces have filled up quickly.

Pam said: ‘I love helping others discover and explore their creative side and share the delights of working with clay.
‘Whether you’re an experienced artist who wants to use our clay, wheels and kiln or you’ve always wanted to give it a go…you’re welcome to join us!’

Sally Henley, Newton Abbot Town Development Manager, is delighted with the new businesses opening in the town. She said: ‘Vibrant town centres are those which move with the times and as a result they are frequently changing. This summer has seen three new businesses open in Newton Abbot town centre and I was delighted that the Mayor of Newton Abbot Cllr Mrs Ann Jones was able to spend some time visiting each of them.
