22 pots from the decorative art collection, highlighting sumptuous glazes from the turn of the century. In shapes and colours complementing the home interiors developed by William Morris and other craftsmen of the period, these experimental glazes made a fashionable alternative to the mass-produced ceramic wares of the 19th century. Art directors, chemists and potters played an important role in developing this kind of pottery from 1870s to 1920s.
