Cobridge

Post by dantheman on Mon Mar 17, 2008 12:53 am

Cobridge was a sister company to the mighty Moorcroft factory and set up in 1998.
Although short-lived (seven and a half years) it produced a very high quality product and some incredible glazes!

'Field of gold' designed by Anita Harris for Black Ryden in 2002, many people think Black Ryden was a pottery in it's own right but it was in fact a trade name used by Cobridge.
