I think this is one of the most impressive series from Glynn Colledge. It was released simultaneously with another outstanding series called Tigo Ware, designed by Tibor Reich.
|Denby Cheviot, Glynn Colledge 1950s|
A bit about Cheviort, from the book "Denby Pottery 1809-1997", Hopwood:
Cheviot was quite different from any of Glyn's previous work. It reflected his awareness of the latest design trends and demonstrated his flexibility.....Glynn with his love of colour and decoration, could not resist embellishing Cheviot. He created one version with a matt finish, in black, dark grey or khaki, which was covered in finely drawn, abstract sgraffito, often including crystals, stars or simple stylised leaves. A second highly coloured version was glazed in yellow, blue or lilac with black tube lining, or in red or green with white tube lining. Some patterns were geometric, some herring bone and others were organic.
Also below, from the book an image of a group of Cheviot Vases - the most outstanding pieces from the series. Love to get hold of even one of these superb pieces of mid-century design one day!
