Clovelly Silk

One of the highlights of the Clovelly Silk range is from Rex Whistler’s 1930’s sketches. Rex is a celebrated artist who lived in Clovelly. He was a hit whilst fighting on the D Day beach front with a tin of his paint brushes hanging off the side of his tank.  

This stylish fabric,skilfully re-created by Ann, is available in six beautiful colours. Consequently they are all exclusive to the Silk shop. Thus many of these designs are being used as part of the interiors at the Red Lion.

Clovelly Pottery

Clovelly Pottery started in 1992 by Clive Pearson. Clive is well-known in North Devon for his vivid colours, beautifully glazes and hand-thrown pots. Consequently each pot is hand-engraved and dated. Buying one, gives you a unique piece of art as well as a lovely memory of your visit.

Clovelly Pottery also stocks a range of high-quality decorative ceramics and domestic ware, including slipware-decorated earthenware pots with imaginative, quirky details by resident potter, Caroline Curtis.
