We’ve been very touched to hear from our Collectors around the world of sightings of our Dragonfly Tiles and Cottage Stripe Tableware – courtesy of telly show Grand Designs and James Strangeways’ simple but stylish new build on Romney Marsh. So far we know our work has been seen in Denmark, France, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, please do let us know if you spot us anywhere else – we’re small enough that keeping tabs is hard as we keep up with making pots. And our talented paintress Julia Catt is enjoying her global fame!
We’d also like to say we were very pleased to see a wonderful interview with James Strangeways closer to home – in Sussex Life Magazine. It’s well worth a read, not least because the interview was after the television programme actually went out on Channel 4. You can read the piece if you click here.
Our hand-painted Dragonfly Tiles and striped bowls featured in Grand Designs Magazine as part of a wonderful feature on James Strangeways’ unique waterside house on Romney Marsh
Rye Pottery & our Dragonfly Tiles were featured on an episode of Grand Designs on September 16th. It was a Godsmark Architects build for James Strangeways next to a Romney Marsh Canal. Our hand-glazed & hand-painted Tiles were used as a stylish backdrop for a woodburner in the living room. And yes, our Cottage Stripes Stripe Bowls were in the kitchen too.
Our thanks to Director Ned Williams & the team for beautiful sequences showing our techniques and talented paintress Julie Catt. And thanks also to Kevin McCloud Esq not least for describing our tiles as “charming”.
