Just out of the kiln!

I thought it would be nice to give a mention about Fosters Pottery, Camborne, Cornwall, who make all my ceramics for The Padstow Mussel Co. This pottery is one of the last remaining potteries in the UK. Managed by Geoff James and his part time assistant Kim. I am lucky enough to have Geoff make all our ceramic products over the last 9 years. He has worked closely with me and my designs, and is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

All our products require a lengthy production time due to the handmade making and firing of each individual piece. He has just made a lovely batch of medium mussel bowls and tea lights to complete a large order from the lovely and exclusive Nare Hotel, Cornwall. Rated by the AA as the best hotel in Cornwall it is lovely to know that the mussels will appear through out the hotel, including the bedrooms!

Geoff has also been making us a run of our range for the shop and website, as they take so long to make it is not unusual for us to run out! It is lovely to go to the pottery and see the huge moulds for the bass jugs and the smaller ones for the tea lights, and it’s a great reminder of how special and exclusive these are.

The Nare Hotel has a no snow policy due to its mild micro climate further south than us in Padstow, so with the coldest March in 50 years, you can be sure of a very warm welcome at this lovely hotel by the sea.
