Fosters Studio Pottery

Post by potterymad62 on February 3rd 2014, 8:38 pm

I don't like the Fosters Honeycomb design pottery. But love there studio pottery. I remember when the pottery was at West Tolgus next to Redruth Secondary School, now Tesco Garage. Here are a couple of pieces in my collection, a lovely Tankard with hand coloured fish design, and a Cornish Pixie sitting beside a log cart.

That is a lovely tankard. It's a shame they mostly did the boring old honeycombe glaze.

Totally agree. I have included more and the marks in separate pictures, files to big to all load at one time. I once lived at Illogan, near Redruth, and have a couple of friends who used to work at the pottery.

I think their best item was the Koala money box, in various hues of honeycmbe glaze. I have a treacle brown one on my desk.

If you like something. That's all that matters. We all have different taste in things, and that's good or life would be boring. Big Shock

I think the Honeycomb Department at Fosters had been on a daytrip to Dorset the day before the came up with this one...

If it hadn't had that Fosters stamp on the base Id have said Continental - Ernestine or Bitossi.
