I collect studio pottery made by Harry and May Davis. They met while working at the Leach Pottery in St Ives, and in 1946, after several years in Africa and South America, they set up their own pottery in an old mill at Crowan, near Camborne, Cornwall.

Here, until 1962, they produced superb functional stoneware and porcelain pottery of great strength and beauty, often decorated with iron oxide  brushwork as shown above.

For more details visit my Crowan Pottery Web site.

If you have any information, or photographs, on Harry or May Davis, or on the Crowan Pottery and its output, I would very much like to hear from you.
