Market House Ceramic Planters

In a joint commission by the Townscape Heritage Scheme and Market House, the new ceramic planters complement the restored windows to the front elevation of the building and coupled with the addition of plants, make for a perfect shop front window. 

Made by one of the leading lights in setting up the Austell Project's - Whitegold Project, Paul Jackson. An established and active presence in the Cornish ceramic scene, Paul has been using local materials in stoneware and porcelain, in a salt glaze kiln at his Helland Bridge pottery for over 30 years. It is where he formed the Market House planters using huge moulds built by resident expert, John Osborne, one of the last people to make bricks in the traditional way.
