Susan Williams-Ellis

Susan Williams-EllisAn engaging figure in post-war British pottery, Susan Williams-Ellis, the daughter of the creator of the cult Welsh hillside village - Portmeirion is celebrated at the London Design Museum with a display of her ceramic designs.

A free-spirit, she transformed a traditional Stoke-on-Trent factory with her eclectic forms, patterns and decoration inspired by her love of Victorian popular culture, the places she visited on her extensive travels and all the while absorbing the vibe of the Swinging Sixties.

With over forty pieces from the Portmeirion Pottery archive, the focus is on her early bold and colourful ceramic designs. Patterns such as Totem, Monte Sol and Magic City embody this lively period when Williams-Ellis was relishing experimenting with the design and manufacture of earthenware.

This is a free display in the cafe area running until 25 February 2009.
