ENGLISH Designer Pottery
WOODSETTON ART POTTERY is a Collection of exclusive and
innovative designs in Porcelain, to complement interior
styles from modern minimalist right back to Art Nouveau
and Arts & Crafts.
Every piece is either made by or under the supervision
of our Designer, Lorraine G Bates BA (Hons), who develops
the glazes and manufacturing techniques used, and also designs
the Pewter components featured in many of the pieces.
The richly coloured glazes are hand applied and during
firing they react and develop varying shades and textures,
so that no two pieces are ever identical in appearance.
The Studio pieces are one-of-a-kind and mostly wheel thrown,
whilst for the Art Pottery pieces, castings techniques are
used to obtain the asymmetric shapes, and the thin, elegant
profiles which are a feature of this unique Collection.
'Woodsetton' is just a few miles away from the site of
the Ruskin Pottery, a pioneer in the English Arts &
Crafts style of mixing ceramics with metal, and a leader
in innovative glaze techniques, until its closure in the
Pieces from these Collections are also available from selected
Galleries and retail outlets.
Lorraine is a member of the Midlands Potters' Association
which is open to members interested in any aspect of ceramics.
