Homes and Gardens 2020 Rye Pottery LB1 Mid Century Modern Ceramic Pottery Lamp Base - Soho Stripe In Denmark Green

Our thanks as ever to the Homes & Gardens team for giving us a great boost by featuring our Mid-century Modern lamp base in their September issue. Particular thanks go to Jo Bailey.

H&Gs “How to Emulate the interiors of some of the world’s chicest hotels” saw our LB1 lamp suggested as a way to recreate the amazing five-star style of the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, originally designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.

The exact design they featured is ourLB1 Medium featuring our Soho Stripe Design in Denmark Green with a natural linen drum shade. This is a genuine shape from our Mid-Century archive given a contemporary twist with a new decoration bringing the 20th & 21st centuries together. A bold, sculptural statement light.

Darwin & Wallace – No 35 Mackenzie Walk

This was the eighth unique bar & restaurant crafted by the award-winning boutique group Darwin & Wallace. Based on the waterside in Canary Wharf, No 35 was designed to continue the group’s tradition of creating a comfortable sanctuary away from the fast pace of urban life. Detail and quality craftsmanship is key to everything this group creates – if it’s not good enough for your home, it’s not good enough full stop.

Our mid-century Modern LB1 lamp base is featured throughout the space adding a soft, cosy glow with the natural linen shades, while the Denmark Green of our hand-painted Soho Stripe and Cascade decorations tie in with the gentle palette of greens, greys, dusty pinks and natural wood with fresh vegetation used throughout the space.

Do check No 35 out if you’re in town and need a relaxing place to stop, it’s a lovely bar and we were thrilled to be involved.

Rye Pottery at White City House

Rye Pottery Table Lights at Soho House's latest venture White City House in the old BBC Helios HQ Mid Century Modern

We’re very pleased to see Soho House’s latest venture unveiled publicly and even more pleased to see our specially commissioned Mid Century Modern Lamp Bases in situ!

Their latest hotel and member’s club is in London’s Shepherd’s Bush, housed in the former BBC HQ that used to flash up on the telly.

You know – the iconic round 60’s “doughnut” building with the famous sculpture of Helios in the centre.

Shown here: The LB1 Medium in Black Tracery

Choosing our medium LB1, we were asked to create 92 table lamps, 2 for each bedroom.  The Soho House interiors team of Daisy Bere & Linda Boronkay first picked one of our own revamped 1960’s patterns (Black Astrakhan) and then complimented it with 2 further mid century-esque designs alongside one specifically developed for the project – the all new Soho Stripe.

You can view our full range of lamps by clicking here, but for now here’s another pic of one of the cosy White City House rooms.  Oh and did we mention there’s a swimming pool on the roof. With a bar…..

A Mid-Century Rye Pottey Cassic – Miss Simplicity

Miss-Simplicity-bottles-b-w-Small-150x200We’ve been looking on the web and spotted there’s one of our popular Mid-Century Classics for sale on ebay – a vintage MISS SIMPLICITY bottle. These bottles in 2 sizes were originally used for Oil and Vinegar.

They were designed by Wally’s brother Jack Cole in the early-mid 1950’s, not as stated in the text for the one for sale on ebay, by Marjorie Cole. Marjorie was Jack’s wife and she produced some very collectable Pottery dolls in the 50’s – just not this one!

A very, very few were made and production had stopped by the early 60s, but we have traced about 20 of these very charming one-offs. Sadly Marjorie in later years destroyed any she could lay her hands on. Miss Simplicity Sm Rye Pottery 2011Jack did not really like his Miss Simplicity, (we have this in a letter on file in the archive) but despite his artistic misgivings she was without doubt a very popular piece at the time and still with collectors today.

We recently rediscovered the long-forgotten moulds for Miss S while trawling through our Mid-Century archives. We’ve been working on plans to revitalise and refresh some of our classic pieces and designs from this period, and Miss Simplicity is such a favourite for us that she’s certain to be part of that. So far, we’ve decided she will be reborn in the 21st Century with a fixed head that faces in a different direction! Next up is the decoration development stage. To the right you can see some samples we’ve been working on – absolute one-offs that a handful of collectors have been lucky enough to snap up in our shop in Rye.

But there are lots more decoration ideas we’re working on, so watch this space, because her outfit’s not finalised yet. When we decide on the first design to officially enter production we’ll be sure to let you know here.

If you want to be one of the first to find out when Miss Simplicity is available to buy, visit our shop in Rye every, single day … or alternatively just sign up for our newsletter at the top right corner of the site.

New Website & an update of some of our latest pottings!

Some of you will have struggled to find us over the past weeks while we have been having our new website sorted out!  We are here and working even if off the radar for a short while,  so please contact us if you need us (click here) Meanwhile I am doing my best to put all our pottery back on to this lovely new site! I am sure you will eventually find it simpler to navigate and hopefully full of interesting things about  all our Rye Pottery ranges. Update: end of September: with help from our daughter Tabby we have finally sorted out the cut off heads and now have put the complete Canterbury Tales pages up on the website. Please do have a look while we go on looking for all the other pre digital pictures for some of the other pages. We are getting very excited as we work through each group and hope you will enjoy the new-look Rye Pottery as much we as do

Vintage Rye Pottery Vases

During the long damp summer June Woolley who retired in 1998 after 45 years, has been back in the attics peering through our amazing archive, not least the from the Mid Century. The result of all  this activity means that we have some  really exciting one-offs in the shop – early 1950’s patterns painted by June onto vases and bowls.

So not only are we one of the few country potteries still in existence today who were selected to show in one of the pavilions of the Festival of Britain, here 60 years on are some of those same  patterns.
