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.

Soholm dish. Maria Philippi, you got me singing the blues.

A couple of small dishes with lovely raised surface designs.

They are by Soholm Pottery, Bornholm, Denmark and probably date from the 1960s or early 1970s. The designer is Maria Philippi. I like the texture of the bumps and grooves on the surface and the graphic shapes in the patterns. But the special thing about this range of pottery is the beauty of the blue glaze. It seems to be just the right shade, not too dark, not too bright. It is the perfect compliment to the tan colour of the pot.

There's more Soholm Pottery in the Potshot collection, you can see some here Danish vases
