Fremington Pottery - the Fishley family

Post by studio-pots on August 25th 2015, 3:07 pm

The Fremington Pottery in North Devon, situated between Bideford and Barnstaple, was found by George Fishley in 1865 and was run by members of the same family until 1912.

The domestic redwares were much admired by Michael Cardew and Bernard Leach so had an influence on the early studio potters. Harvest jugs and more ornamental pieces were also produced but below is a large oval pie dish that was typical of the domestic wares produced at the pottery for most of its lifespan.

The Fremington pottery and the Fishley family had massive influence in that part of the world and pottery in general.
You have the E B Fishley and Fishley Holland link to Michael Cardew (one inspired, one taught). You have its link to the Barnstable potters (glazes and firing). You have the Ed Sadler period and you have the family link to Edwin Eltons sunflower pottery. The list goes on but for a small family run pottery it made a big splash. Nice to see some bits here.
