One of my oldest friend’s son, Jethro Jackson, has just opened a studio/gallery at Porthilly, near Rock, on the North Cornwall Coast. Jethro and his father, Paul Jackson are both potters and more recently Jethro has started painting beautiful seascapes. The gallery is also showing the work of other potters including Chris Prindl and Eddie Curtis, sculpture and jewellery – and some of my photographs! This is the first time in nearly 20 years that any of my photos have been seen in public. Most of the photos are of Cornwall, either the North Coast or Bodmin Moor.
The gallery is very light and airy and you can see Jethro at work in his studio at the rear.
About 100 metres down the road is the beautiful little church of St Michael which stands right on the coast at Porthilly Cove with views of Padstow across the Camel Estuary. It’s a fantastic spot and well worth a visit if you’re in Cornwall this summer.
