Rye Iden Pottery

Dennis Townsend set up the Iden Pottery at his home in 1959, and after moving to larger premises in nearby Rye, continued producing Iden Pottery until his retirement in 2002.  Iden was a successful pottery, with export markets in Japan and the United States, and by the late 1960's was supplying top London stores such as Harrods and Heals.
