In the first of two rooms dedicated to Hornsea Pottery, we tell the story of how this pottery flourished, against all odds, as a result of the energy and imagination of the Rawson brothers and some of their remarkable friends and employees.
In the second room, we discuss the decisions and forces which brought decline and eventually the failure of the business.
And of course, we show you lots and lots of Hornsea pottery from this, the largest public collection in the world; a fascinating trip through 50 years of design history.
On display is a selection of about 2000 pieces of Hornsea Pottery following the chronological order of production. This display illustrates the wide-ranging designs and techniques that were used over the years.
