Animal Friends - St Just - from 1977


Animal Friends was started by Biddy Picard in 1977. John Parkes and Barbara Pilkington helped out on a temporary basis intially but eventually took over in 1980. They produce a wide range of birds and animals, each individually hand-crafted. John is especially noted for his larger pieces of work such as gannets and and cormorants.

John and Barbara's work is available from many craft shops and galleries in Corwall and further afield.

Hi Dan.

Yes there is a connection but only for a short while at Mousehole. The pottery is set up at the Eagle Cottage, Kelynack, St Just.

Love the seals. Sometimes they come into the shop glued to pebbles, (I seem to recall some were made for various animal charities).

Little cat -

Yes, lovely. That's the advantage of being handmade; put a bit of character into each one.

Is there any connection between these makers and Tremar, as the animal figures are very similar.
