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.

Fosters Studio Pottery Co.  Empty Fosters Studio Pottery Co, lime green vase - date/potter suggestions?

Post by LindaG January 16th 2023, 1:11 pm

I’ve got a lovely lime green Fosters Cornwall pottery vase which seems quite a departure from their usual muted colours. I’d love to know when it was made and if it was from a special range or by a named potterIt’s approx 6 inches tall. Thanks!Fosters Studio Pottery Co.  E7b0d910

Fosters was not a studio pottery. They were more or less a standard pottery where the potters did not do individual work. Nice bright piece though. Early 70's?

There was a Studio Pottery branch of Fosters (some examples in the Forum) but I don't know who the potters were - they would have been employees of the company; throwers and decorators. I think there was a collaboration with Poole Pottery. The glaze colours would point to a 70s date

That's interesting about the Poole collaboration - I thought 70's by those colours. It's nice to find something a bit different and I wonder how many other pieces like this were made!

Fosters pottery was involved in handmade studio pottery. From my research Fosters may have acquired studio potters from outside of the factory to produce pots for them, for what I have discovered it seems mostly commissioned pieces. Some have personal potters marks but no record of who potted them, I have included some pictures of a pot all hand thrown red earthenware with no personal mark on this one just the fosters stamped mark.
