John Tam's & Son's Pottery Stoke on trent, There is a real contrast of pottery's in stoke if you are lucky enough to visit any this one is a must, a lot more modern than weatherby's there is no real feeling of history in the building except in the roof area where all the mold's were, non the less it it a nice explore with some great little finds i loved the silk screen's and pile's of mugs very nice.if you are going to stoke i would take this one in first then move on to Weatherby's as that is amazing in contrast.
