POTS made in Parracombe could be part of your Art Trek experience, if you are on the art trail this June.

Kevin Green, has recently opened a pottery in the village giving visitors the chance to admire his decorated stoneware.

It took six months for Kevin, a former teacher and lecturer, to rebuild the pottery which was previously in Andover, Hampshire.

The desire to relocate came from "the wish to live somewhere beautiful".

"The response from the local community, The Exmoor National Park Authority and the local art scene has been very encouraging," he said.

"Visitors so far have been appreciative of finding a potter in such a beautiful village and being next door to the popular Fox and Goose pub is a bonus."

Kevin's work, created with stoneware clay from Cornwall mixed with a smooth white Earthstone stoneware, is mostly thrown on the potter's wheel. The results as you can see would look fabulous gracing many a kitchen or dining room — and are completely functional too.

The potter of some 20 years, who has shown his work at most of the UK's leading ceramic events, is looking forward to welcoming people to the pottery during art trek. Kevin Green Pottery at Rock Cottage Parracombe is open on three weekends during Art Trek: June 11 -13; June 18 - 20; June 25 - 27. The studio can also be visited by appointment Monday to Thursday.
