Sutton Pottery is a small studio workshop in rural Norfolk, established by Malcolm Flatman in 1977 in the village of Sutton, near Stalham. He uses the potter’s wheel and the fire of a gas kiln to create a large range of “reduction” stoneware entirely by hand. He has developed an assortment of practical, repeatable, replaceable and affordable tableware and kitchenware in a wide variety of glaze colours which he blends himself in the interests of consistency. The products are dishwasher and microwave safe. Malcolm also produces a multitude of more decorative pieces, including house name plates and other commissions, and some distinctive lamps. He also enjoys the challenge of making orders to customers’ own ideas. The pottery carries the distinctive “windmill” symbol.

Stow Mill is situated 400 yards from the sea on the north Norfolk coast just outside Mundesley. It was a corn windmill working from the time it was built in 1828 until the early 1930`s.

Sails and stocks were replaced in 1990 and a complete replacement of the fantail and fantail gallery is intended as soon as funds become available. The Mill is open all year round to visitors from 10am till dusk, with a small admission charge. Explanatory diagrams are displayed on each of the 4 floors to enable the inquisitive visitor to understand how it once worked, along with an accumulating collection of photographs and information telling the mill’s history and story through time.
