Celtic (Newlyn & Mousehole)

Post by dantheman on February 8th 2008, 6:58 pm

 

Bill and Maggie Fisher set up a small pottery in Mousehole Cornwall in 1958
The pottery was simply named 'The Studio' but in the early 60's they ditched that unimaginative name and Celtic pottery was born.
In 1968 Bill left his small pottery but Maggie continued by employing Ian  Box and his brother to produce the clay pieces that she would decorate.
In the 1970's Maggie moved production to Newlyn and soon found a new partner in Ev Stevens who ran Newlyn's Gwavas Pottery, they launced the Medallion pattern and soon expanded employing several local potters including several from the nearby Troika pottery.
Celtic closed in 1982

Mousehole Celtic bowl.
Bill & Maggie Fisher originally set up Celtic pottery in Mousehole Cornwall,these pots are not as commonplace as the ones from the Newlyn pottery and are therefore more desirable.
Note the more rustic decoration and less sophisticated glazes.

My latest piece of Celtic but also the earliest,this Mousehole piece predates anything I have seen before,having the Wharf cottage label and also signed by Maggie Fisher in the glaze wash.
