Making It

An old cow house, 7 years of intense study, and a small bank loan are what started up Nicholas Mosse Pottery, 43 years ago.  Oh, and I forgot to add 12 hours of work six days a week for all those 43 years, and I mustn’t forget the fantastic local staff who joined in the endeavours and became master craftsmen!

So now there is a newly renovated 5 story mill, powered by hydro electricity and containing all sorts of spaces for making pottery (and our shop), there is a 50 year history behind Nick Mosse the potter, there are still bank loans (!), and there are around 45+ crafts people working hard to produce Nicholas Mosse Pottery.  

A big percentage of our staff love what they do and are proud of their work; perhaps that’s why our customers also love our pottery.  It’s never easy to make as the processes we use are totally uncommercial, totally handmade from clay to finished article.

It’s the time of year to heat ourselves with a constant cup of hot something and wrap ourselves up in layers of wool.
