Our story

Clayman’s story can be traced back to 1978, when our Director, Reg, set up shop in Nyetimber, West Sussex, operating as Nyetimber Pottery Supplies.

In 1995, we moved our shop onto the same site as our mass storage at Morrells Barn in nearby Lagness. A fine example of a single isle, five bay Sussex barn, Morrells Barn dates from the 18th century and is surprisingly well preserved.

These days, we remain a family-run business, with Reg and Linda continuing to work in our shop and attached office – although the advent of the internet has changed how many of our customers shop with us.

We’re open Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 4.30pm, and the first Saturday of any month, 10am to 4.30pm. Whether you’re planning a trip to see us or you prefer to order online, we value every single one of our customers and look forward to meeting you.
