The Hop Pickers

Hops have been a quintessential part of the landscape here on the Kent & Sussex Border since the 16th Century. They’ve also been central to the pottery made by us here in Rye since the 1800s. So what could be more natural than a Pastoral figure depicting Oast Houses and the traditional craft of Hop Picking?

We still meet lots of customers who remember the annual pilgrimage at harvest time with their Mums and Aunts. Really it was temporary work for adults, but for city kids it was a country holiday.

This is a feelgood snapshot of history, filled with fond childhood memories.
