For those of you new to the site, these pages are dedicated to potters and potteries in the Isle of Wight, an island off the south coast of England. Its main aim is to highlight the work of ceramic makers in the Island, past and present. Those of you who have visited us before - thanks for coming back!

We have now reduced the paperback copy of a A Century of Ceramics from £28 to £10, Hardback copies are now £20, reduced from £35 and 'At the End of a Rainbow' is now reduced to £2.95 click on the menu left for details.

It's been eleven years since the book launch of 'A Century of Ceramics', and it's heart-warming to know that people are still appreciating the work we put into the book, and to be receiving comments like those below:

'Just wanted to say how great the book is, I've had it for a year now and it is a constant source of information, helping me identify the pottery I buy and collect. There's nothing more satisfying than buying a pot and finding a mark you haven't seen before and then looking in your book to not only find it but know exactly what date it was made. It's a beautiful book and well worth the money!' Paul Godden, 22 November 2013

With very best wishes,     Andrew & Lisa Dowden
