Denby Potter’s Wheel
Denby Potters Wheel
Denby “POTTERS WHEEL” was designed by David Yorath, 1973.
The forms for this dinnerware were actually designed by Gill Pemberton in her Bokhara series, and given a new life with David’s pattern & colours.
Potter’s Wheel was produced between 1974 and 1987. It has a simple otameal and iron oxide brown glaze and simple pattern of concentric circles.
There are varations in the intensity of the colours much like other Denby stoneware.
The centre area of the plates was glazed in either a rust, yellow, green or blue colour (but finding a plate other than in rust colour is very rare these days)
There was also a range of giftware designed to match this set which I really like. Each piece is different because they were hand-painted. The range seems to consist of vases, jardinieres, and small bowls. I really like the texture and finish of these pieces and their design is timeless. David also made a number of one off pieces in similar colour-ways to these.
