Hello Ed,

Throughout the time John was at the Pottery, he was'nt allowed to sign pieces. All the work produced had to say "designs by the Hornsea Design Team". All my father's work since leaving the Pottery is signed by him and sometimes dated. These designs have been available through the Hornsea Pottery Collectors society who hold meetings throughout the year, you just need to become a member. John usually attends these and often gives talks.

Thank you

Jonathan
Thanks Johnathon , also love the cat , if you hadn't shown it , I would have sworn it was a Scandi Cat Hornsea Pottery (E Yorks & Lancaster) - Page 3 677383

Hello Dantheman,

John made the cat around 6 months ago, the other muramics are around a year old. It is really wonderful to find out what his next little creation is going to be, some are sensible and some just have that unique Clappison twist, it usually depends on what his recent experiences have been, and then he will theme it around them.

Thank you

Jonathan.

Hello Skay,

My dad is the ripe old age of 73, so it's nice to see his creative juices have not dryed up completely yet? It keeps him out of mischief, and it gives my mum a bit of peace too.

Thank you

Jonathan.

I love the wall hangings - the angel is my fave but the first geometric one you posted is gorgeous also - mmm spoilt for choice.

I have a mermaid but it's the only one I have.

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.

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.
