In the 1960s our grandfather using the utmost skill and patience made many of the original models for the Babbacombe Model Village then renowned for its authenticity. He worked mainly from home and our pottery is now housed in his former workshop less than a mile from the sea.
Very much a family business the boss is our TOM, shown overseeing some new lines or mostly in his “I`m not asleep I`m thinking” mode amongst the pottery laid out in the sun to dry in a quiet corner of the garden.
All is not what it seems! At our Merryfield Pottery Studio in Torquay we have explored the concept of making useful items inspired by and replicating everyday food, from biscuits and cakes to fruit and cheese they include everybody’s favourites.
At Merryfield Pottery we have painstakingly recreated Fruit and Vegetable pieces which are suitable for Events, Weddings, Display and Show Home Staging which we are happy to add to by commissions of unique Pottery food.
Please contact us for prices and we are quite happy to receive your ideas.

From thought to retail. Our Merryfield Pottery Wellington Boots were inspired by a lost boot left on a wall! It led to an exciting range of designs with many uses.
Not forgetting our very collectable much loved Merryfield Pottery Cats which include Bottlestoppers, Candle Snuffers, Paperweights, Pincushions and Thimbles among our hand painted happy faced felines.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and find something to make you purr!
