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.

Fremington Pottery - the Fishley family Empty In the family tradition

Post by bluenote on December 12th 2017, 2:15 pm

Its almost a snap but this piece is signed by William Fishley Holland who I believe was the grandson of Edwin. The W is a little indistinct due to the glaze but the letter is there and runs into the F. I believe William was only at Fremington for a few years at the beginning of the 20th C but am finding different or non specific dates on the net and in Godden. Can anyone help with an accurate timescale please so the jug can be slotted into a clear time span?  ThanksFremington Pottery - the Fishley family 20171216

The books on Fishley Holland are not great for dates or marks. He trained for 10
years under his grandfather, from c1902/3, aged 13 1/2, until EB Fishley died, and
the pottery was sold by the family in 1912/13.
He then moved to the newly established Braunton pottery.
