Port Isaac Pottery is situated in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of the same name. Michael and Barbara Hawkins moved there, to a beautiful converted Methodist chapel, in 1996, from Stroud, Gloucestershire where they had a pottery for eighteen years. Their work is stoneware, hand thrown and individually decorated. Precious metal lustres and gold are applied, and each piece has at least three firings. The bold and elegant forms complement the watercolour-style decoration. Both oil and electric kilns are used. Port Isaac ceramics are collected and exhibited nationally and internationally.
The Port Isaac Pottery showroom is open to visitors all year, and is well worth a visit, not just for the thrill of seeing the beautiful work en-masse in the lovely chapel with its organ loft and music gallery, but for the pleasure of spending some time such an attractive, pleasant village.
