From next week I'm exhibiting with CityMade.UK. We are a group of five award-winning designer-makers who present an antidote to mass market products at our upcoming show at the Society of Designer Craftsmen Gallery in Shoreditch (pictured).

I will be showing with Euan Cunningham (graphics), Adam Hussain (glass), Tori McLean (textiles) and Jessica Noble (jewellery). We bring craft skills to contemporary design, creating high quality, unique objects. Colour features strongly in this show, which references a Mid-Century Modern aesthetic.

We are all members of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, which has been promoting high quality workmanship for over a hundred years.

The CityMade.UK exhibition runs from Monday 17 October to Saturday 29 October 2016 at the Society of Designer Craftsmen Gallery, 24 Rivington Street. London EC2A 3DU. Opening hours Monday to Saturday 11am - 7pm, Sunday 11am - 5pm. Entry free.


The Society of Designer Craftsmen was founded as the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society in 1887. Among its past members are some of Britain’s most eminent designer-makers, including William Morris, Eric Gill, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Eric Ravilious, Bernard Leach, Walter Crane, W. R. Lethaby, William de Morgan, Edward Johnston, Michael Cardew, Dora Billington, Gordon Russell, David Pye and Gerda Flockinger. Its gallery in Rivington Street has a regular programme of exhibitions by current members.

The Art Nouveau tomb of the Schmidl family in the Rákoskeresztúr Jewish cemetery in Budapest, made for Sándor and Róza Schmidl, is one of many grand mausoleums of the Hungarian Jewish bourgeoisie. It’s in good condition, having been recently restored.  It attracted me because it’s predominantly ceramic, manufactured by by the Zsolnay factory, who are famous for their Art Nouveau pottery.

The designers were Béla Lajta and Ödön Lechner. Schmidl had previously commissioned Lajta to design his grand grocery store in Budapest (pictured). The connection with Zsolnay came through Lechner – the two had worked together  designing iridescent stove tiles and architectural ceramics. Zsolnay also made the roof tiles of the Matthias Church in Budapest.

After Vilmos Zsolnay's death in 1900, the factory lost some of its vitality and originality, but the Schmidl tomb was made before his influence was exhausted and is an extraordinary flowering of ceramic art. The ceramics are sculpted, textured and glazed a beautiful turquoise blue.

Within the tomb are some Hebrew inscriptions and mosaics showing the Lion of Judah, but otherwise there is little Jewish about it, typical of the Neolog (Reform) Judaism of Hungary. The majority of Hungarian Jews, especially in the cities, are Neolog and the orthodox are in the minority.  Some tombstones in the Neolog Rákoskeresztúr cemetery have no Hebrew inscriptions at all.

There are grand tombs along the North wall - Art Nouveau , classical and eclectic. Eli Valley describes these almost secular tombs as ohelim, tents, in which it was traditional to bury outstanding members of the community. The Schmidl tomb is an Art Nouveau ohel with oriental touches. It was a style Lajta used in works for Gentile clients, including his competition entry for the tomb of Lajos Kossuth (pictured).

The white garden at Sissinghurst is one of the most famous in England and one of the most popular. Suburban visitors make notes and try to improve their own small plots along the same lines. It's an English garden, redolent of the Romantic philosophy of Gertrude Jekyll and William Robinson, though with hints of southern Europe in its figs and occasional exotics. Conservation is important to the trustees but there are innovations like the new meadow planting.

How do you make such a garden? First, not everything is white. Grey and silver figure strongly, and as no plant flowers long there have to be assertive leaf forms as well. Second, there has to be a background, and the weathered red brick, old terracotta pots, statues, antique urns and oak furniture help a lot. Even better if you can arrange a foil of dark grey clouds. Third, you have to have a lot of money. Sissinghust was bought by the aristocratic Vita Sackville-West. As a woman, she didn't inherit, so she was rather strapped for cash. Sissinghurst was a ruin in 1930 and cost £12,000; Harold Nicolson reckoned it would take £15,000 to put in order. At current house prices that's about £115 million.

I was taught art at school not only before the internet but also before Letraset, the transfer lettering widely used in the 1970s and 1980s. My teacher, Connie Passfield, a sweet, Slade-educated lady, insisted that for poster and book design we had to be able to draw our own letters, and the letter forms she taught us were based on Trajan Roman and Gill Sans.  Gill Sans, designed by Eric Gill, was one of the ubiquitous letter forms of the 20th century. The others were Times New Roman, designed by Stanley Morrison, Univers, designed by Adrian Frutiger, and Helvetica, designed by Max Meidinger. When I was a graphic designer, I preferred the modern Univers and Helvetica and was irritated when small printers, not quite up to date, thoughtlessly substituted Gill. But Gill is a classic letter and has had a revival. It’s talked about a lot now because the type on which it's based, Johnston’s Railway type, has its centenary this year.

Yesterday I went to look at the Ditchling Museum of Art and Crafts in the village where Gill set up an artistic colony in the 1920s. Converted from a waggon store, the museum has adapted a piece of vernacular architecture to modern use and recently added a fine extension. It’s an Arts and Crafts gem, focusing on the Roman Catholic artists who were attracted to Gill, on the wider artistic circle in the village, including the weaver Ethel Mairet, and on vernacular lettering from the area.

Gill Sans was, of course, used by Penguin Books for decades. It’s also used by the John Lewis Partnership, who have made it look more modern by using lower case and altering some of the letters. It’s used in many other places too.

Personally, I’ve never been much interested in Gill. He was a Catholic convert of a weird kind and doesn’t seem to have submitted to Church discipline. His art was erotic, he was a pacifist and a Distributist, he had silly ideas about dress and didn’t believe in trousers (see picture). I gave up reading his autobiography, all about his ideas and feelings with not much about events. Then Fiona MacCarthy’s biography, making full use of his diaries for the first time, revealed that his ideas about sex were not merely odd, but that he used them to justify his repeated rape of his daughters. We can forgive Frans Hals his alcoholism, we can even forget the murder Caravaggio committed, but can we overlook Gill’s conduct?  I wonder if Mrs Passfield would have stuck to Trajan Roman if she’d known more about Gill?

If he was alive, it would make sense to ostracise him, just as Gary Glitter is ostracised. If his work was insignificant, his evil would drive us to other artists, just as no-one would want Hitler’s paintings on their wall. If there was a connection between his sexual abuse and his art, we would drop it, and we might think twice about his erotic art now; but the typeface has no connection at all. Nevertheless, although I like Gill Sans, it's preferable sans Gill.

I discover good ceramists every day. Here are two pieces by Vivien Moir, a Scottish artist. She trained as an illustrator at Jordanstone College of Art and Design and lives on the west coast of Scotland. I found these images on the website of the Water Street Gallery in Todmorden, and the Heinzel Gallery in Aberdeen, where she exhibits. Her blue-and-white illustrations recall the 17th century ceramics of Delft, in particular their naive pictures of Adam and Eve and of King William III on a horse. Utterly charming.

Here is a good description, with many photos, of the "Aesthetic" suburb of Bedford Park, written by Phil Beard. Bedford Park was a development for artistic people built in the last quarter of the 19th century and a concentration of Arts and Crafts ideals.

G.K.Chesterton mocked it in The Man Who Was Thursday (1908), which opens like this:

"The suburb of Saffron Park lay on the sunset side of London, as red and ragged as a cloud of sunset. It was built of a bright brick throughout; its sky-line was fantastic, and even its ground plan was wild. It had been the outburst of a speculative builder, faintly tinged with art, who called its architecture sometimes Elizabethan and sometimes Queen Anne, apparently under the impression that the two sovereigns were identical. It was described with some justice as an artistic colony, though it never in any definable way produced any art. But although its pretensions to be an intellectual centre were a little vague, its pretensions to be a pleasant place were quite indisputable. The stranger who looked for the first time at the quaint red houses could only think how very oddly shaped the people must be who could fit in to them. Nor when he met the people was he disappointed in this respect. The place was not only pleasant, but perfect, if once he could regard it not as a deception but rather as a dream. Even if the people were not "artists," the whole was nevertheless artistic."

On Sunday I came back from exhibiting at Hatfield Art in Clay, slept well and unloaded the car the next day. Now a moment of reflection. Who were the best in show? Impossible to say, but here are ten good ones, reflecting my tastes and prejudices. What I looked for was a personal voice, sureness of execution, mastery of technique and that indefinable energy that makes a piece of pottery stand out from the rest. Naturally, I respond to the use of colour, but there are some muted pieces here as well.


At 80, Robin was the senior potter of the show. In his long career he's been a production potter, making thousands of pieces on the jigger-and-jolley with a band of assistants, and is now an artist potter of distinction working alone. I bought two bowls by him and a little life story written as an A-level project by his grand-daughter; but why is there no serious biography of this major figure of 20th century studio pottery?


I love Yo Thom's small, shy, grey pots. She was born in Japan, studied in the UK and trained with the Japanese-inspired British studio potter, Lisa Hammond. She works in Dorset and sells in the UK, Europe and Japan. Yo's Facebook page is here.


I picked out Vilas's work last year and perhaps it's unfair to others if I pick him out again, but his Zen Rogue heads have developed and are now drained of colour. He works meticulously, as you might guess from his small, neat appearance. Website here, but unfortunately he doesn't show his most recent work.


Daphne taught me at Harrow and I still refer to her notes on ceramic chemistry. She's one of the few tin-glaze potters in the UK and shows great restraint in her monochrome drawing, forgoing the dozens of colours available for maiolica. Line and texture dominate, with botanical themes that have the right balance of realism and abstraction. Website here.


A new potter to me. She graduated from Camberwell in 2014 and has already made a considerable impression. She's inspired by mathematical relationships, which she explores through geometric patterns applied to distorted forms. As an anti-Romantic I'm drawn to artists who make calculated and unemotional work like this, and Rhian does it well. She's artist in Residence at The Ceramic Studio Warwickshire and is supported by the Crafts Council's Hothouse 2016 programme. Website here.


Now for a colourist. Barry Stedman works in earthenware so that he can get bright colours in his ceramics. He's also an accomplished watercolour painter. Every time I see his work, it's developed just a little bit. His colours this year are paler and softer; the matt, unglazed areas are getting bigger and he now uses drawn lines in addition to fields of colour. Website here, but, again, no recent work is shown.


If you watched The Great Pottery Throwdown you'll have seen Richard in the background - he was one of the technicians on the programme. Richard combines the direction of Froyle Tiles, a company making high-quality tiles, with individual work of originality. His stoneware vessels are thrown and pressed, then dozens of little transfers are applied. Website here.


Another figurative potter, making work as different from mine as you could imagine: amusing but rather unsettling figures. Wu says, "I always had a hard time when asked about my work - I have no deep meanings - not ones that I recognise anyway! I just produce from my heart, sensing when what I’m creating begins to feel right." So just enjoy it. Like all the others, superbly made. Website here.


Traditional slipware in earth colours remains popular. Jennifer Hall's work is not original but it's made with verve, the shapes are just-so and there's a well-judged translucency in the slip. Website here.


Perfectly made, wood-fired ceramics from Germany. Susanne Lukács-Ringel works in Zweifalten in south-west Germany but regularly appears at Hatfield. I always want to buy her work but - and this is the problem potters have with potential customers - I'd have to throw away something to make room for it. OK, next year. Website here.

As I'm packing my ceramics to show at the Art in Clay pottery fair next weekend, I wondered how many sales opportunities potters have in this country. There's Art in Clay in Farnham as well, Ceramic Art London, ditto York, Ceramics in the City at the Geffrye Museum, the Potfest fairs (three of them), Earth and Fire at Rufford in Nottinghamshire, the Craft Potters Association show for its members in Oxford, a big pottery jamboree in Aberystwyth, the Ceramic Biennale in Stoke on Trent - that's a dozen. I may have forgotten some - let's call it a dozen and a half. Then I suppose one should include the craft fairs that include not only pottery but other crafts as well - Craft & Design lists 62, so 80 altogether. That's pretty good.

I've mentioned in other posts that there's virtually no public support for craft marketing in the UK. The government-supported Crafts Council runs Collect for galleries, emphasizing artistic crafts of international standard and therefore inaccessible to 99% of makers. France and Italy have more fine-grained, city based support for the crafts. If you think that 80 craft fairs in the UK is good, here's the list of markets dedicated to pottery alone in France - 217 of them:

POSTSCRIPT 17 August 2016

Irena Sibrijns writes: "Many markets doesn't necessarily mean a good thing. I spent 7 years in France trying to make a living and found it diabolical. Lots of cameraderie and meals in the evening organised by the mairie or the potters of the village but few sales. I love being a potter in the UK and find there is a supportive public and many galleries for our work."
