The Artistic Home

British art pottery from the Ian and Rita Smythe Collection

Displaying art pottery was key to creating a fashionable, 'artistic' home in the late 1800s. This display showcases the creativity and innovation of British art potteries and their artists, many of them women, who painted and decorated wares by hand.
