People in the Potteries still value the creativity of their community, as the generosity of these individuals testifies. For a number of centuries, the history of the locals was a history of artists and craftsmen and women. This has come to an end -- but we must not casually forget the visual inventiveness of an entire community. This is an on-going project. Please contact us if you have a memory you wish to be recorded at
