St MARYCHURCH

The St Marychurch Pottery at Fore Street, St Marychurch in Torquay was set up c1962 by brothers Cyril and Brian Wilson both experienced and long serving potters after the Watcombe Pottery where they had worked closed. They produced traditional Torquay motto wares up until 1969. Most items found are cottage and seagull decorated jugs tableware although cockerels and some art pottery items are known. Similar looking items were also made privately by Cyril Wilson in semi-retirement, possibly at the Wellhouse Pottery in Brixham but only marked with his name or initials. Some of Cyril’s commemorative pottery is shown here and more of his work can be seen in the Not Torquay section.
