Beach Artware

Post  Ev on Fri 23 Nov - 8:15

I found Beach Artware listed in old phone books from 1975 - 1978 at 2a Rabone St, Henderson. The Managing Director was P.J. Beach, 16 Woodruffe Ave, Henderson.

I don't know anything about this pottery and had added their details to a Clay Craft topic as there appeared to be a connection. Hehee and Crown Lynn is mentioned again!

Stewart Salisbury mentioned elsewhere that they made colourful very popular wares and I am keen to see some now.

Woodruffe Ave rings bells .... I think Norm Parker lived in that street too!

I found this when I googled Beach Artware -

I've always wanted to know what they made .Mrs Beachs name was Eva her husband was in a wheel chair and the sons name was Paul.
I think they made hand potted stuff and same of the potters where Pauls school friends.

Dan also worked for Stewart Pottery for about 1 year, but was not comfortable making slip ware. I think he came to me after Peter Beach passed away and beachware closed. I am sure Norm Parker took over their premises.
Dan was a great guy with a funny sense of humor. He had a terrible time during the war in Europe, and he had many stories to tell. He also knew my father very well.
Cheers Stewart
