Westcote Bell Pottery was established in 1983 in a small rural village South of London, England. Co-founders Vaughan Smith and Jacqueline M. Cohen are a husband and wife team. They both taught school for 5 years until they returned to the United States in 1985.Their move to Mansfield, Ohio, where they set up a new studio lasted two years. Jacqueline then started a masters program at Ohio State University in Columbus. Vaughan set up a new studio in German Village, Columbus , Ohio. Their new studio thrived and expanded, they sold through 100 galleries and museums, while exhibiting in craft shows across the Eastern United States.In 1994 they moved to a small rural village called High Falls in New York State, 90 miles north of Manhattan. They moved into a 200 year old Eyebrow colonial and built a studio/gallery. After 17 years they moved to Nova Scotia and renovated a 160 year old boat house on the LaHave River estuary, next to the Fort Point Light house and the LaHave River Bakery. The new studio has been set up to continue making their unique style of pottery, but this studio will have a teaching area for classes and workshops.
