Dive Into This Poole

Poole Pottery was at once a traditional and somewhat conservative English company dating back to the late Victorian era. Always willing to change with the times, they moved boldly into modernism in the fifties hiring artists to brighten up their wares. Eventually they brought on Carol Cutler who hand painted this colorful piece from the "Delphis" line sometime in the late 60's/ early 70's. The vibrancy of color and primitive lines remind me of the works of 80's icon Jean Michel Basquiat (see painting above).
