Why Doulton Stoneware?
It was the early 1860's when Royal Doulton began to manufacture salt glazed stoneware. The Lambeth School of Art partnered with Doulton at around the same time and Henry Doulton became a member of the school board in 1863.
Doulton recruited many, now well known, artists including George Tinworth, Hannah Barlow and Mark V. Marshall.
The stoneware designs they produced are, in the main, individual one off pieces. Beautiful works of art that have stood the test of time.
Stoneware popularity peaked in the late 1890's when Doulton employed around 370 artists at Lambeth, however the demand for stoneware eventually declined and by 1914 Doulton Lambeth employed under 100 artists. By 1920 artist numbers had fell to only 30, although stoneware production continued at Lambeth until WWII.
In 1952 the artist and potter Agnete Hoy joined Doulton Lambeth.
She brought her own unique style to Lambeth and revived traditional methods. Producing contemporary stoneware ceramics decorated with flowers, birds and fruit on a cream coloured stoneware base. Agnete Hoy’s design studio and the Lambeth works closed in 1956.
In 1974, Royal Doulton re-introduced Doulton Lambeth Stoneware as a tableware brand, but other than the name modern Lambeth Stoneware bears no relation to the earlier stoneware produced at Lambeth.
