Made in England
The site of a pottery dating back to the early 1800's makes it one of the longest running craft potteries in the country making practical domestic stoneware.
The pottery is established in 1926 by Michael Cardew who had been training under Bernard Leach the last three years. With the help of two locals, Cardew rented the pottery buildings and the bottle kiln and restarted the pottery that was closed during the war. Cardew’s ambition was to make pottery for everyday use and at a price that ordinary people could afford. Using the clay on site and firing the pots in the bottle kiln, the range and skills quickly developed. Since then, many potters who eventually became well known joined there, including Sydney Tustin and Ray Finch.
Now, the pottery concentrate on making stoneware using wood fired kiln with philosophy of Cardew alive.
