RON JACKSON, a very experienced all round potter who had previously worked at the Watcombe, Devon Tors, Devonshire, Sandygate and Babbacombe Potteries. In retirement he produced quality items at home, hand decorated in the traditional Torquay ware styles. He produced some of his own designs, worked and refined locally sourced clay. Ron threw, decorated and fired pots in his garden shed. Some of these can be distinctive owing to their lighter colours and are usually marked faintly on the base RJ. He had a continuous demand for his pottery for sale locally, in particular polka dot coffee cups, as well as finer decorated pottery for keen collectors of his work.
