    Ruskin Pottery crystalline drip glaze vase c1930. The vase is ovoid baluster in form with flared neck. Softly coloured blue tones at its rim through an ochre coloured band into darker blue. Over-glaze colours applied with characteristic drip-glaze technique onto a vivid blue ground. Unusual in that it has applied rosettes or flower-heads centrally around its body. Ruskin art pottery was based on experimentation with decorative glaze finishes and during firing so that every crystalline vase is effectively unique. Impressed mark for Ruskin (partially obscured by glaze). The vase is 15.5 cm in height.
    The vase is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or restoration. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.

     
    Edward R. Taylor (the first Principal of both the Lincoln School of Art and the Birmingham School of Art) founded Ruskin Pottery in 1898 – placing his son, William Howson Taylor (formally a student at the Birmingham School of Art) as manager. They named the pottery after the artist, writer and social thinker John Ruskin; whose principles about beauty and quality they believed in. The pottery experimented with glazes, producing innovative designs across a range of items, from vases and bowls to jewellery and buttons. Ruskin Pottery was exhibited both in the UK and abroad at international fine art exhibitions – achieving "grand prize" in 1904 at the St Louis International Exhibition, giving them the recognition they needed. Further awards were gained at other international exhibitions, including Milan 1906; Christchurch, New Zealand, 1907; London 1908; Brussels 1910; Turin 1911; and Ghent 1913. When the studio closed in 1935 the formulae for the glazes and all the pottery documentation were deliberately destroyed, so that the unique Ruskin products could never be replicated.
