I just found these page on Tremar from an American site (I think).
With very interesting info.
One page mentions about figures made from the Tremar molds, but by Country Craft Potteries.
Another page mentions about the start and end of the Tremar Pottery and the fact that at first items were Hand Made, before switching to molds.

This home page has very useful links to a load of pictures of the various people, ships, animals etc made by Tremar.

Glad I just found this site.

This is also very useful, and explains why some Tremar items were later made by Shelf Pottery.
An explanation by Graham Alcock who started Shelf.

I was just about to add this to the Shelf Pottery page as well.
And found it was added earlier in the year by 'BrandX' Not sure how I missed that.

Email from Graham Alcock of Shelf Pottery, 8 September 2011

Hi Jeff,

Shelf Pottery began in my garage, at home in Shelf (a small village between Halifax and Bradford in West Yorkshire) and continued on three other sites until I stopped production at the end of the 90s. As the designer and production director I was involved with Tremar Pottery on a day to day basis.

We became involved with Tremar in the early 70s as their, stoneware, table and kitchen ware was an ideal complimentary product to our own stoneware. We had a retail shop but the vast majority of our production was marketed through our party plan organisation. We had large deliveries of Tremar each week as it was extremely popular.

We had no warning when Tremar went into administration and we were left with ten weeks of orders which we were unable to fulfill. After contacting the administrator we solved part of the problem by driving to Cornwall and buying some of the remaining stock.

Shelf and Tremar both used the same mould maker in Stoke. After the liquidation he was left with the block, case and master moulds and, I believe, unpaid bills. As the receiver showed no interest in the moulds, in order to help both our problems, the mould maker made a number of working moulds, which we bought, and used at Shelf. This is how Shelf Pottery came to produce its versions of a small number of Tremar models.

As an alternative to Tremar we bought stoneware from Trequoit Pottery which was designed by Louis Hudson. The ware was very similar to Tremar and the two could easily be confused. Louis had produced his range of stoneware for a long number of years and it is debatable as to which came first.

Tremar produced the right product at the right time and it was a surprise to us all when production ended.

I hope the above recollections may help you understand the interaction of the two potteries.

Best Wishes,

Graham

Tremar Liskeard Cornwall - Page 2 Empty Is this Tremar?

Post by Grumpy Grandad May 29th 2020, 7:05 pm

I always associate this style with Tremar but have only ever seen it marked with an impressed 'Tremar', so this mark is a mystery to me. Is this a Tremar pot or a close copy?

The mark looks somewhat Louis Hudson's LH mark, but not like most of his work.
There was a somewhat similar mark on the Louis thread that was left being unsure about
https://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t5472-louis-hudson-cornwall?highlight=HUDSON

Having said that it looks a lot more like Tremar, or Shelf pottery. But not like their mark.

Thanks all. Just looked on ebay for similar examples and it seems that Hudson made a full range of these condiment pots.
Elsewhere on t'interweb I read that Hudson worked as a potter for 12 years from 1971-83, then gave it up to become a lorry driver. I wonder what motivated such a change of career?

He had worked for Alan Wallwork before starting out on his own. Alan let him have a kiln, if my memory serves me correctly, to help get started and Hudson was supposed to pay him for it when he could.

He never did.

Tremar 10inch Wall Clock.
I've not been able to find any other examples of wall clocks from Tremar, so I'm guessing they are quite rare?
