A trio of vessels in the 'Sycamore' pattern designed by Glyn Colledge, circa 1960. All three of these robust shapes are hand painted stoneware objects. This is what Colledge is best remembered for. However, having only been in production between 1963 & 65, examples of this pattern are rare.

Much more frequently seen are 'Glyn Ware' and 'Glynbourne Ware', produced in the 1960s & 70s. These fluid patterns, inspired by British flora & folk art, show the influence of Glyn's tutor (from 1933), Gordon Forsyth -the renowned ceramicist & educator who, at Burslem School of Art, also taught Susie Cooper, Clarice CliffCharlotte Rhead.

In comparison to the leafy series mentioned above, the 'Sycamore' pattern is more greatly concerned with the aesthetics of mid-twentieth century Modernism. The hand painted and hand incised sgraffito decoration, features vibrantly coloured shapes inspired by atomic particles and patterns.

Although inspired by the precise geometric forms found in science, this pattern is also warm and charming thanks to the honesty of the designs' application. Lines are allowed to be irregularly placed and thicker blobs of glaze are crackled.
