About Magpie x Hornsea
Our latest collaboration is with vintage pottery brand – Hornsea.
Hornsea is a great British design story involving some of the giants of British pattern and ceramic design.
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. Hornsea developed unique and ground-breaking techniques and designs.
Trading for 50 years before closing in 2000, Magpie has started re-manufacturing some of their greatest designs, starting with the illustration works of John Clappison. As avid mid-century fans, Magpie feels that the legacy of Hornsea shouldn’t be forgotten and should be loved by future generations too.
The Cat and Owl designs were created by John Clappison, chief designer at Hornsea in 1967.
Magpie have redrawn these super cute animals from the original illustrations archived in the Hornsea Museum and created new ceramic moulds for cruets sets and money boxes, glazing them using authentic Hornsea colours of the period.
