RON JACKSON, a very experienced all round potter who previously worked at the Watcombe Pottery, Devonshire Potteries Ltd. and finally at the Babbacombe Pottery. In retirement he produced quality items at home hand decorated in the traditional motto ware styles as well as some of his own design by working his own locally sourced clay, then throwing, decorating and firing 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 as well as from keen collectors.
