Susie Cooper Keystone
One of my favourite designs by Susie Cooper from the 1960s is Keystone, released around 1969.
It is based on the classical Greek Key motif, stylised and put to perfect use on Susie’s ‘can’ forms she developed in 1958 and which she bought with her to Wedgwood, where Susie worked from 1966 to 1980.
Several colour-ways were released in the design over time due to its popularity – but I think the black design is the most impressive. What I also love about this design is how the pure matt black contrasts against the glossy white glaze.
Black was the first release in this series, followed by Red, Green then Old Gold.
