  It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of
David Eeles who passed away on 21st of September 2015 after a short illness. He was in the workshop only two days before going into hospital. Being true to one of his favourite sayings
"Potters don't retire they pot till they drop"

David and Patricia moved to Dorset in 1962 (Making 2012 their Golden anniversary year) from London & with their sons Benjamin and Simon are still working together in the West Dorset village of Mosterton. 
The pottery is set in an old 17th century coaching inn where the family work in partnership to produce an extensive range of pottery, mainly Stoneware with some Porcelain and Raku. The Stoneware and Porcelain is fired in a three chambered oriental type dragon kiln. The Raku is fired in a small cross draft wood fired kiln, lifted out with tongs and then flamed on sawdust. This gives the rainbow colours on the pots. The Raku is fired to 1000 degrees, the Stoneware and Porcelain to 1280 degrees centigrade. You can obtain more information on both kilns by clicking on the kiln button on the left. 
The pots can be seen on display in our gallery at Mosterton, for directions click on the map button on left.
We also hold a series of Exhibitions each year around the country again click on the Exhibitions button on left.
