Welcome to one of the best known small potteries in England.

Famous for over 200 years Rye Pottery is sought

after by collectors all over the world.

Rye Pottery is a small family-owned business, making exquisite individual hand-painted majolica decorated figures, birds and animals. This website covers everything from the Pottery's history and inception two hundred years ago right up to details of the latest Pilgrim to join our Canterbury Tales procession.

In the History section you can find out about pre-war Rye Pottery, or check out the Cole Family who've been running it since 1947. If you want to know how we produce our uniquely individual pieces or read about the designers who model them for us, then click on the Designers section.

There's a whole section dedicated to the pieces that we are producing today and you can also see who stocks Rye in the UK or visit our US agents to find out where to buy us in America.

Or why not visit Rye? One of England's medieval jewels, perched idyllically on its hill on the South Coast, this beautiful town is only one and a half hours from London and a mere thirty minutes from Eurostar at Ashford.

We hope to keep adding elements to the site, particularly new pictures and details of the latest arrivals, so please do come back soon. If there's anything else you need to know about Rye Pottery today please feel free to ask us through our Contacts page.
