Celtic Pottery Mark
Celtic Pottery - Mousehole and Newlyn
 

Celtic pottery was started in Mousehole by Bill and Maggie Fisher in the mid 1960s. Maggie was a Canadian design graduate. They developed the Celtic Folk design which was very popular. Bill and Maggie eventually split up and Maggie continued running the pottery.

She then met Ev Stevens who was running the Gwavas Pottery and who subsequently joined her. Ev had graduated from the Bouremouth and Poole College of Art. Maggie and Ev developed the Medallion design which was also very popular. In the late seventies, the pottery stopped producing these ranges, changed its name to Sunset Pottery and switched to the production of more up-market cast ceramics - Art Deco designs and lustre figures.

Production of the Celtic range was continued for a while by Poole Pottery.
