Sunfield Pottery

Sunfield Pottery. Established by Rosemary Dugdale-Bradley in 1937. Sunfield is a residential special school/ children's home near Stourbridge, Worcestershire, originally run on principles inspired by Rudolf Steiner. A piece I found online last year said that  the pottery was set up there both to provide crockery for use in the school, and as a commercial exercise to generate funds. That page doesn't seem to be available anymore, but the commercial aspect is touched on here:

Another reference, although I haven't read enough of the previous chapters to really understand the context:

Very neatly made, thinly potted stoneware.
