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.

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. Apparently there may have been some collaboration with Poole.
