John Davey, Bridge of Dee, Castle-Douglas

Post by r-and-f on January 30th 2014, 12:17 pm

A couple of pieces by John Davey, and some information plagiarised off the internet:

Leonard John Davey (1913-1991) was born in Nottingham.  Teaching at Castle Douglas High School provided John Davey with the necessary funds to set up his pottery, the Old Bridge Pottery, Bridge of Dee and become a full time potter in 1968.  The pottery became known as the Davey Pottery from 1976 when he was joined by his daughter Sylvia.  His work was shown at craft exhibitions throughout Scotland.  He was a founder member of the Stewartry Arts Society in 1969.
