Founded in 1971 and in continuous production up to the present day, John Beusmans' Carn Pottery produces some of the most distinctive and unique studio pottery available anywhere. Based in the small village of Nancledra, near Penzance in Cornwall, it has become one of the most successful, and collectable, of UK studio potteries. Yet until now, very little had been written about Carn, and much of that inaccurate.
So it is with great pleasure that we now present this, the first ever in-depth study of Carn pottery, Published as a limited edition paperback, it has 128 pages and an impressive 296 full colour illustrations.
There is a gallery with examples from the earliest pieces through to present day designs, including a rough guide to prices, while a handy appendix provides a full list of shapes and design codes. Illustrations include some exceptionally rare, never seen before pieces.
This book is a must for anyone interested in Carn pottery.
