..................... and most of it is not very nice! Cheeky

Even in the old days before I stumbled upon studio pottery, factory produced lustre wares were never my cup of tea - I even collected Royal Lancastrian pottery for a time but avoided anything with lustre on and theirs was better than most.

Note: A biased opinion but I had to say it - I feel much better now!

I do agree that most out there is awful though, but I think some have used the technique brilliantly.

This teapot by Geoffrey Swindell is actually decorated using lustre glazes, but the result is nothing like usual lustre. It's the vein like decoration.

Lustre can be quite a complicated business.The two principal modern forms tend to be Reduced glaze Lustre which is made by incoporating metal compounds in a glaze and reducing it as it cools after being fired.The glaze tends to cover the whole surface of an item.
The other being the more arty type of Reduced Pigment Lustre,which is the main one historically. Used by potters like Alan Caiger Smith and Sutton Taylor in modern times. Involves a great deal of work and high kiln losses.

I have quite a few Wilkinson Oriflamme lustre pots and the glaze has always impressed me greatly as does the glaze on a lot of the Fairyland Lustre
