My mum was a professional studio potter in Mull, and near Edinburgh, from the early 1950s to the 1990s. She mostly made small domestic ware: jugs, mugs, bowls, and especially small stoneware and earthenware boxes.

Among some old unsold stock of hers, I recently found these stoneware pendants. I'd forgotten she produced these - I think they may have been a short-lived experiment in the 1970s(?). But now I think they're rather great.

Does anybody know anything about ceramic pendants at this time? Were all potters making them? Did somebody specific start a fashion for them? Any info, or other examples gratefully received!

Yes, they were very popular in the 70s. A number of studio potters were making them for the hippy generation
