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.

Carn Pottery Chimney vase, 1970s.

In October I did a blogpost on Carn Pottery, you can see it here: Carn Pottery. Growing up fast. As a follow up to that, here a couple more examples of that nicely textured pottery from Cornwall.

The top picture shows a vase known as the chimney vase. Designed by John Beusmans in the 1970s, the vase is really comprised of two boxes joined together, the tallest is open at the top to take a sprig of flowers. The vase is decorated with a wonderful, organic texture.

The second picture shows two more Carn vases, this time probably from the 1980s. Known as the box vase and the orb vase, they both have attractive abstract designs and that lovely Carn textured surface.

No wonder Carn Pottery has found so many new followers. It's so good to look at – and just asking to be picked up and touched.
