Born in Catterick, Yorkshire England in December 1958. The idea for cottages came about after a visit I had made to a shop in St Catherine’s Dock, London. The owner there showed John Hines and I a butter dish made by Denby and fashioned in the shape of a cottage. He told him that they had sold well and perhaps we could try something similar, well we did and the rest is history.
My association with John Hine lasted for 17 years, I then moved for two short periods to two American companies, first Media Arts Group and then Enesco.
