Hornsea Pottery Design was formed in 2021 to celebrate the culture and heritage of Hornsea Pottery. Based at Hornsea Freeport on the site of the original pottery we develop our own new products using the world-famous designs. We are also the UK Licensing Agents for the official patterns and designs, owned by Hornsea Pottery Intellectual Properties Ltd ©. Contact us if you wish to use any of the designs for your products.
Hornsea Potteries was founded in 1949 by brothers Colin and Desmond Rawson. Driven by a wide array of design influences the pottery quickly grew from being a purveyor of seaside tourist trinkets to the largest studio pottery in the world, employing over 700 people. Hornsea’s rapid growth was generated by widespread popularity and inspirational design. Located away from the traditional ceramics heartland in Staffordshire, Hornsea developed unique and groundbreaking techniques and designs many of which were influenced by the Rawson’s textile backgrounds.
Hornsea is a great British design story involving some of the giants of British pattern and ceramic design. Today, Hornsea remains a much loved and influential brand, with a timeless appeal.
