Slipware in the Collection of The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Slipware earthenware pottery is decorated with liquid clay, or 'slip', and from the mid-17th century it was widely produced across England and Wales. It was made to be used, but often elaborately decorated with geometric motifs, animals, even portraits. The Potteries Museum in Stoke-on-Trent houses a significant collection of Staffordshire slipware, which is showcased in this volume. The hundreds of well-photographed pieces include dishes, jugs, chamber pots and cradles, as well as 20th-century studio creations and industrial slipwares.
