Being busy collecting doesn't leave very much time to update the Rob's Poole Pottery website, so all my new finds I'll post on this blog, and for the main site follow the links on the right.

Eerie Glow Again
Although a good design can remain in fashion for years, some have more mixed fortunes. I didn't know about Delphis when it was new, and hugely popular, but caught the second wave a few years ago, once it had risen again from a very deep trough.
This vase, painted by Lynn Gregory in the early 1970's, was one of my first discoveries. I loved it, and thought it was pure 1960's/70's. Which the decoration maybe, but in fact the vase is thrown in the same shape as the one in the previous post. A shape that remained in production, despite being designed by John Adams over 40 years earlier.
