He went over there this February, and he loved it. These are two of his favourate designers! He may have met stig when he was younger, but I will have to ask him for sure.

Thanks Jonathan.

I know he went in the early 60's with Bob Hindle,I'm glad they made an impression as they are my favorite Scandinavian designers too

In this interview with Clappison,I was interested to read that in 1966 he was given free time to make what he liked,this was the time when he produced his best piece simply called 'the girl'


Hello Dantheman, John has not got one of these models. This was the only bust he did, and only a few dozen were made. These are now very rare, happy hunting!

John has kindly sent me the design brief,I'm astounded that the design wasn't put into production and can only assume that it wasn't viable due to production costs?
Would you mind asking your father please Jonathan?

Thank you very much for your kind comments. I will ask John some more information regarding production costs on this piece. I know it was extremely time consuming and involved many layers and processes.

Cheers Jonathan.

Hi Jonathan
Im not sure if i have met you but I have been to your house quite a few years ago to meet your wonderful dad. Im a Yorkshire guy too. I sent some time looking through various files and things-wonderful. Your mum thought I would get bored eventually-no so!!

I am still hoping to get a publisher for a book on your day:Contemporary Hornsea: John Clappison 1955-1972 but I also want to include all his other design work

Hi Dan
Suprisingly I dont have much Hornsea. My connection with Hornsea is very different. To me John Clappison was the only designer in UK to get good design on the dinner tables of ordinary people. I feel other designers did not achieve this.

I mainly collect Susie Cooper-I met her in 1990-that was exciting. I would really love to write a book on John Clappison-he is such a great man and so down to earth. I went to the Hornsea Pottery with school when I was about 11. All I can remember is all the girls wearing Bay City Rollers outfits.

Im new to this site and i am enjoying it very much indeed. I love ceramics.Just been over to Arabia in Helsinki-wonderful. Sneaked into the Savoy Restaurant to see the Aalto interior!!!!!
cheers

That's great! We have very little information relating to Hornsea and non about Susie Cooper so if you feel like letting us know about your 2 passions then I look forward to reading your posts Excellent

Hello Andy,

It is great you have joined the forum!. I do remember you visiting my dad a
few years ago. I hope your well, and I will pass on your best regards to John and Liz. I'm sure they would welcome you to visit them again in the future and discuss any future book publishings, then my dad can update you on all his more recent designs? That is of course, if you have the time?

Kind regards

Jonathan.

Any ideas please with date and designer of this small Hornsea piece. I am tempted to think designed by Clappison but there must be other designers I am unaware of. Thanks John
