TIMELESS TIN GLAZE: English Delftware with Robyn Ives

Wednesday 12 May 2010, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

Tin-glazes were known in Mesopotamia about 1000 BCE. The technique was revived around the 9th century, when potters in Iraq used tin to opacify lead glazes.

Over time the technique spread to Europe and into England. Explore how the English created their unique English Delftware; discover the techniques, decoration and influences on production.

Robyn Ives is a collector and lecturer on English ceramics, with a particular interest in Post Medieval English pottery; tin-glazed earthenware is a class, within this field.
