Langley Mill Pottery

26th March 2019 - 28th April 2019


Description

Nature in Art is priviliged to have some important and beautiful ceramic items in it's collection, spanning over 1000 years. Some are by individual makers (studio pottery) and some are from factories or larger scale operations. It is facinating to see how nature has inspired and influenced design over the years. This exhibition is a collection of English ceramics from the lesser known Langley Mill Pottery, founded in 1865.

The majority of Items in this display are from the later 19th century and early 20th century. The period from the turn of the 19th century to the end of World War 1 was one of unparalleled prosperity, innovation and expansion for the Langley Mill Pottery, with the proprietors becoming increasingly affluent and influential.

Together the exhibits present a selection of typical styles and designs for which Langley Mill was known. They highlight the skills of individual decorators like Daisy Calvert, George Leighton Parkinson and Mary Helen Goodyer, as well as the different techniques used to achieve particular effects. All the items are what were referred to as 'art wares' which included a great variety of vases, bowls, jardinieres, fern pots and other similar decorative items.

We would like to record our thanks to Terry Millner and John & Jenifer Giblin for their strategic assitance in making this exhibition possible and for enabling us to display what are rarely shown items.
