Seems his wife Moreen decorated them, and I wouldn't be surprised if they roped the kids in too :)

many potteries in that corner of England employed family and friends to decorate the pots,it's a great example of folk art and cottage industry that lasted well into the 20th century

Tourist Ware they called it. Sold in quantities as souvenirs for nearly a century and a half. Only really declined when mass holidays abroad started in the 70's. It was a staple of many, many small studio potteries in Tourist area. Something that very few studio pottery collectors have even thought about.

I think the same could be said for the majority of studio potters who set up where they're most likely to find customers for their work, and those customers are most likely to be tourists/holiday makers - such as St Ives. In the 70s the government actively encouraged craftsmen and women to set up in craft co-ops in places like the Yorkshire Dales. As a collector I think there is a difference between studio potters selling to tourists, and regional potters like Deruta in Italy who churn out copies of classical pieces for the tourist market.
