Mid Century shallow boat dish Hastings Pottery, England. Vintage l960’s dish designed by Dennis Lucas.
Lucas set up Hastings Pottery, in partnership, only few years after the Festival of Britain in 1956.
The festival had reinvigorated studio ceramics in the UK - looking to European modernism - and Scandinavian design I in-particularly for inspiration.
Lucas’s design capture this new modernist aesthetic - exuberant use of abstract pattern and small scale production.
A lovely example from a very collectible pottery studio. Very large! and set upon 4 ‘piglet” legs.
The Hastings Pottery incised double fish mark is on the underside.
