There he developed his own unique style with his early work showing his mastery of drawing on pottery. In 1954 he moved into an old traditional workshop where he still is to-day. He was awarded a first gold medal at the International Exhibition in Brussels in 1953, and has participated in numerous exhibitions, including in 1955 an exhibition at the Kunstgewerbe Museum with PICASSO and Fernand LEGER, 'Every one of his pieces belongs in a museum,' thus Picasso commenting on Gilbert Portanier's ceramics'.

All the pottery produced at Wenford Bridge begins as a unique stoneware clay body, which is a mixture of three different local clays. The glazes are also mixed and ball-milled on site and were developed specifically for use with the Wenford clay body by Michael Cardew over half a century ago. Each piece of stoneware offered by Seth has been personally thrown and hand decorated. The glaze has run into the mark and obscured it.
