About

Ruskin Pottery ceramic vase is made of hand thrown drip glazed stoneware. Impressed signature and date to underside: [Ruskin England 1927]. About the studio: "The Ruskin Pottery company was an English pottery studio founded in 1898 by Edward R. Taylor, the first Principal of both the Lincoln School of Art and the Birmingham School of Art, to be run by his son, William Howson Taylor, formerly a student there. It was named after the artist, writer and social thinker John Ruskin, as the Taylors agreed with, and followed the tenets of Ruskin. The pottery was situated at 173-174 Oldbury Road, Smethwick, then in Staffordshire (now part of Sandwell, in the West Midlands County). The pottery produced was notable for the innovative glazes used on a range of brightly colored pots, vases, buttons, bowls, tea services and jewelry. The glazes devised by William Howson Taylor included misty soufflé glazes, ice crystal effect glazes - "crystalline", luster glazes resembling metallic finishes, and the most highly regarded of all, “sang de boeuf” and Flambe glazes which produced a blood red effect. The 'sang de boeuf' glazes were created using reduction of copper and iron oxides at high temperature. This was a difficult technique, first developed in China in the 13th century and reinvented by several art potters in Europe in the late 19th century. William Howson Taylor was one of the principal exponents of 'high fired' techniques, producing a range of colors and unique "fissured" glaze effects. Having exhibited at home and at international Fine art exhibitions, the award of a "grand prize" in 1904 at the St Louis International Exhibition, gave them the recognition they needed. Further awards were gained at other international exhibitions, including Milan 1906; Christchurch, New Zealand, 1907; London 1908; Brussels 1910; Turin 1911; Ghent 1913."
