Set in the most fantastic coastal location, right in the heart of the UNESCO designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Welcombe Pottery offers beautiful handmade pottery, glass and clocks to buy.
A very short distance from the coastpath and near to the beach, pub and facilities in Welcombe, the pottery is the perfect calling point on a walk or drive in this scenic area, or the ideal focus for a lovely day or afternoon out.
Established in 1973, David and Alice took over Welcombe Pottery in 2004, and sell from the pottery during the season as well as through galleries and on line.
Simplicity of form and decoration combined with practical domestic use are the essential ingredients for David's pots. “They have to be a pleasure to use”. High fired stoneware accounts for most of the work, using glazes that give a unique quality to each piece. Alice makes kiln formed glass as well as ceramics, both influenced by the coastal light, plant life and the dramatic seascape of North Devon.
The Pottery is open Easter to October 10am- 5pm Tues- Fri, Sat 10- 1 and some Sunday afternoons. Please phone if you would like to see the pottery out of season. You can also buy their pottery and glass online and see extensive photos of their work.
