*Dick The Pot*

By Rock
Richard is a potter in the village of Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales since 1971 and Richard's wife, Jill and son Dan all work together to make traditional high-fired stoneware of high quality.
what makes Richard's pottery unique is the fact that Dicks has only hand as he lost his right hand in a childhood accident.
I know Richard and his family very well as we also had a business in the village for many years and still visit whenever possible

Unique and very well made pottery, I especially like the white ware!

Please tell your head gardener that the tolls for sale are definitely toys, not at all sturdy-- She would enjoy looking, but the real toys are on the other side of that wall!
