Rye Pottery on BBC Radio

Rye Pottery will be on local radio tomorrow Thursday May 31st.  We have been asked to join in a telephone chat about The Diamond Jubilee helping small Sussex firms in these difficult times. We should be live on BBC Radio Sussex 95.3 FM or 105 FM and also on DAB at about 8.40am.

It is always fun to be involved,  but a bit nerve racking doing live pieces. Last year we did a live interview outside the Pottery as the reception was better, but the local train went through at the same time, which meant all the cars were stuck in the road behind us waiting to move while the Rail Crossing gates were shut!

More about our Jubilee pieces


May seems to be rushing past and still we cannot catch up on our Diamond Jubilee orders!   We are making the little transfer  tankards as fast as we can, not helped by Bank Holidays of course when no kilns are firing !  We have been digging into our archives and have been pleased to find pictures of the colourways used to celebrate the Coronation back in 1953.  So here are 2 sizes of hand painted  Jubilee Tankards in the Coronation  Pattern – the large is approx 1 pint size and the smaller 1/2 pint.

We have used the same  charmingly cheerful colourway to paint  both 8 inch and  10 inch  diameter plates, not to mention  the centre piece of our Diamond Jubilee display~ a large hand thrown bowl~ in the same striking colourway.

Country Homes & Interiors magazine

Rye Pottery Multifloral Jug used by Country Homes & Interiors Magazine

We’ve tiled more bathrooms than we can count in the last 40 years with our Rye Tiles Range, but we’ve just spotted a wonderful photograph from interiors magazine Country Homes & Interiors. You can see the beautifully styled shot on the magazine’s website here – Summer bathroom | Bathroom ideas | Image | housetohome.co.uk. It’s a classic straight jug in multifloral and serves as a good reminder that jugs are just as good for flowers as they are for drinks!

Biddy recently bought a Rye Pottery vintage Cadborough Brown glazed jug on ebay (yes we’re partial to a bit of Ebaying too) which she also uses as a flower vase. This though, is a glaze which we don’t currently make and we wanted an extra one for our archive.

The House to Home site is great, packed with ideas and inspiration, and it’s the online home for a diverse group of leading interiors magazines from Homes & Gardens and Country Homes & Interiors to Style at home and Living etctake a look by clicking here.
