Boscastle Pottery (Camelot Pottery), Boscastle 1967-
 

Boscastle Pottery was established in 1967 by Roger Irving Little who has since been joined by his son, Tim.
The pottery
specialises in Mocha ware. This is a technique where "mocha tea" is applied to wet slip. The tea runs through the slip creating a tree or fern-like pattern. The tea contains a staining agent. Traditionally tobacco was used for this but nowadays coffee or various chemical recipes are used instead.
