Mary Rich

1940 - 2022

Mary was one of Britain's best known potters. She was a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association, a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and a member of the Cornwall Crafts Association.

Her pots are hand-thrown in porcelain. Most of them have several layers of colour applied to the raw clay to achieve exactly the right base for her final decorations, added after the glaze firing. The characteristic geometric designs are applied with liquid bright gold and other lustres, using fine brushes.
