There is a connection, as the Yeo Pottery in Clevedon was started in the 1970s by someone who worked for Fishley Holland.

Yeo Pottery Clevedon slipware

Post by NaomiM on October 2nd 2013, 10:58 am

Slipware pottery plate made by Yeo Pottery.



Label and signed Yeo Pottery Clevedon, on the back




Style is very similar to Fishley Holland's slipware pottery - FH owl plate for comparison
http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/pp.cgi?item=2189
Yeo pottery was set up by one of the potters who used to work for Fishley Holland, presumably when FH moved from Clevedon to Dunster.

Just after the Second World War, Bill Janes joined Fishley-Holland's Clevedon Pottery as a decorator. Before that he had worked in grocery shops, having trained at Sainsbury's, but soon picked up throwing pots, as well as being an excellent decorator. He remain at the Fishley Holland Pottery until its closure in 1977.

He lived around the corner from the pottery in Clevedon and there in his garden and outbuildings in Moor Lane he started the Yeo Pottery after he was made redundant.

NOTE: I have added some information about the Clevedon/Dunster potteries separately under that thread.

If you search on "Yeo Pottery" on a certain well-known auction website, you'll see a similar item with its original paper label.

Thank you for that - It now seems obvious, but I thought it was a stylized monogram!

Far better to just stick to this site and under the "Fishley Holland & Dunster" thread you will see that the Yeo Pottery was the pottery of Bill Janes, who previously worked at the Fishley Holland Pottery in Clevedon.

Janes lived around the corner from the Fishley Holland Pottery in Clevedon at Newhouse Cottage in Moor Lane and began working there around 1946.

He stayed with the Fishley Holland operation until it finally closed in 1977 and then set up the Yeo Pottery in his garden and outbuildings.
