Next to the tollgate is the Seconds Warehouse which sells Portmeirion Pottery. This was Clough's daughter Susan Williams-Ellis and her husband Euan Cooper-Willis began the Portmeirion Pottery in 1960. Susan had trained at Chelsea School of Art under Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland. 1961, after acquiring Kirkham's Pottery, she was able to expand her skills to shaping as well as decorating. In
1972 she created Botanic Garden which proved to be most successful in both design and commercial terms. The range was based on the neglected beauty of Victorian illustrations of flora and fruits. It proved to be a classic design. The Pottery is now sold world-wide but its spiritual home is still here at Portmeirion. previously the estate garage. Behind is Smith Square, where offices and workshops are housed around the estate yard. This was built by Clough's master joiner Mr Braund-Smith and completed in 1971. Built for functionality these service buildings exemplify Clough at his most basic and yet they not do lack for a certain elegant symmetry.
