Denby Glynbourne

Denby Glynbourne

Glynbourne Ware (not to be confused with Glyndebourne ware which is a different design) was designed by Glyn Colledge in 1960. It was marketed as a prestige product and sold until about the 1970’s when the exotic designs of Gill Pemberton and David Yorath were more favoured.

Glynbourne continues the long Denby tradition of traditional high quality stoneware, hand thrown and hand decorated.

Production Studio Pottery at its best. Each piece was handpainted in natural tones of browns and greens with a simplified decorative pattern of leaves….the glaze is just wonderful to the touch.

It has continued to be a very collectable range to the present day.

Denby Burlington

Denby Burlington Design – Albert Colledge 1958

“Burlington” was design by Denby Icon, Albert Colledge in 1958-59 when Albert was 68 years of age and had worked at Denby for 55 years.

It was very contemporary design then, and I think it looks just as contemporary now. (Colledge is the correct spelling for Albert’s  surname, often misspelt)

Originally the design was glazed in a satin matt black and decorated with white, vertical broken lines. Soon after there was the turquoise blue variation. There is also a multi coloured pastel decor as seen in the planters below, and also an all green decor. The forms are made of stoneware and very long lasting – as is all Denby pottery.

The forms in this series have such beautiful lines and proportions – and consisted of a variety of vessels including vases, bowls, planters, lidded jugs, coffee pots, coffee mugs and cruets.

This is an unusual form for a coffee pot, and I think it looks better without the lid – which sits quite loosely – and is more appropriate today as a water jug probably.. Read more
