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.

Hornsea Impact. Vases and boxes from 1964, 1965

Hornsea Pottery again, this time from the early 1960s. This is part of a range called Impact. And I think, even today, it would look really good displayed in a modern interior. The circular graphic emblems are raised in relief against the shiny black bodies of the pots. The designs are in blue or pale brown.

Impact was designed by George Ratcliffe and was produced in 1964 and 1965. The vases shown in these pictures have square bodies and round necks – I like the lip at the top of the neck, it seems to just finish the vases off properly. The lidded square box is nice too.

In a way, this is only one half of the Impact range. The other half is made up of a selection of cylindrical shaped vases with grooved bodies. I hope to be showing some of those in a later post.
