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.

Louis Hudson lamp base. Another Cornish gem.

Following on from my earlier blogpost on Carn pottery, this rustic, earthy looking ceramic lampbase is another nice example of studio pottery from Cornwall.

Made by Louis Hudson, probably in the 1970s, the bottle shaped lamp base has a wonderfully textured design of raised and impressed motifs. I particularly like the warmth of the clay colour and the restrained use of the glazes.

For more information of the studio potteries of Cornwall there's an excellent digital museum here: Cornish ceramics museum. The site has an excellent maker's marks section for identifying pottery from the region.
