Hornsea's had a redo!
Belfast brand Magpie has teamed up with the famous mid-century pottery design studio Hornsea to reboot the iconic 1967 animal designs created by John Clappison, chief designer at Hornsea. This fantastic collaboration brings your favourite Hornsea designs back to life by putting a contemporary spin on some 1960s classics.
Hornsea Potteries was founded in 1949 by brothers Colin and Desmond Rawson. Driven by a wide array of design influences, the pottery quickly grew from being a purveyor of seaside tourist trinkets to the largest studio pottery in the world, employing over 700 people.
Hornsea’s rapid growth was generated by widespread popularity and inspirational design. Hornsea developed unique and ground-breaking techniques and designs.
Hornsea traded for 50 years before closing in 2000 and this new collaboration with Magpie keeps their legacy alive while also introducing them to new generations of collectors.
