Raymond Everett was born in 1926, a nephew of Jack and Wally Cole (see Rye Pottery).
He first learnt to pot from an Indian potter during the Second World War while serving in the army in India. At the end of the war he returned home and studied at the Beckenham College of Art.
He joined his uncles at Rye Pottery in 1947, and worked his way up to Pottery Manager before leaving in 1960 to start his own pottery - the Raymond Everett Pottery.
