The Fabulous Fifties in Pottery

The Mid Century Era, particularly the 1950s, is quickly becoming my favourite era: along with the rest of Mad Men obsessed public! I’ve always loved this decade, the atomic prints, fantastic design and colour palette of grey, turquoise, mustard…

What’s strange then is that West German Pottery from this era has only recently started to shine in my eyes. Previously, I was always drawn to the bright oranges and reds of the ’60s, or the really crusty ‘Fat Lava’ pieces. However, as my taste for interiors evolves more towards the Mid Century asthetic, the clean lines and stylish forms of the ’50s are beginning to come into their own.
