Clevedon Pottery

Post by Marcusborra on July 29th 2015, 6:07 pm

Stoneware lidded pot with a natural oatmeal coloured glaze. Impressed with Hand thrown at Clevedon Pottery Tel: 872952 and
there is a clear impressed potters seal near the base.
Doesn't seem to exist as a business now, is anything known about this pottery, who ran it and where it was?
I presume this Clevedon is the one in North Somerset.

Height: 15.5cm
Diameter: 14cm

The Fishley Holland run Clevedon Pottery finally closed in 1977 and it was sold to a potter by the name of Norman Darby. He made stoneware there for some years (I don't know how many) until illness forced him to retire. I assume that might be his mark?

After Darby the site became a craft centre and pottery was produced there by John Bishop of Sheldon Pottery, who had started out with Fishley Holland.

Thanks studio-pots. The mark does appear to be based on the initials of Norman Darby ie: ND. Excellent

I've come across other pieces which have a mochaware decoration.

Googled Clevedon and came across this article about Fishley Holland
