Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Impressed by Hornsea Imprest

Here we go, then. Potshot number one.

Let's start with some John Clappison lovlieness. To me, it's got the lot. Great colour combination, contrasting surface texture, clean bold shapes, and simple but beautiful decoration.

This is Hornsea Pottery. The range is Imprest, designed by John Clappison (who's work will feature quite frequently on Potshots) and produced 1964-1965. There are four different patterns in the range: Square and Circle (shown in the large picture), Fish-Eye (the two vases), Eye, and Bamboo.

To me, these bold vintage ceramics have a strong mid-century feel. And, as you'll gather, I'm impressed.
