Nichols Building Vintage Arts and Crafts Centre in Sheffield earlier this week. It is perhaps older than it looks, dating to the early 1930's, and is hand thrown, white stoneware, in a shape designed by John Adams, with an inscribed shape number 806. But what drew me to it, like The Dear Leader to WMD, was the thick, lustrous, orange uranium glaze. which was also developed by John Adams, about the same time that Marie Curie was conducting her more fundamental experiments with similar stuff. I wonder how many Becquerels its emitting.
Some scary reading about uranium in ceramics
The vase has just been moved to the far side of the room!
