Town Mill Pottery
The Town Mill pottery is situated in the heart of the Town Mill, bringing true artisan craftsmanship to the heart of the mill’s courtyard.
Situated in what was the original stable block, The Town Mill Pottery retains much of its historic charm – no doubt because the art of pottery is a process even older than the mill itself and so lends itself to the space so beautifully.
With the pottery established on site with the restoration of the mill in 2001, the original founders Berey Pealing and Don Hudson were joined in 2017 by Harry Anderson.
In 2023, the batten was passed wholly to Harry Anderson who welcomes visitors to view demonstrations of this ancient craft and talk about the work in progress.
Working mainly in stoneware with carefully considered glazes, Harry’s tableware and giftware are often bright like a seascape, sometimes muted and more subtle but always unique and tactile.
If you’re coming from further afield to make a specific visit or purchase, please be aware that the pottery closes early on a Sunday and generally closes on a Monday, but feel free to call Harry ahead of time to avoid disappointment. Though fairly prolific, his pieces can sell out.
The Pottery is open all year round. When it’s cold the door may be closed to keep the warmth in but if the lights are on, you are always very welcome!
