In praise of my Grandfather

My grandfather, Jack Price, was an amazing pottery designer, working in Staffordshire and Bristol in the 1930s. He designed for Pountney's and created their fantastic Dorland shape. He was a very active socialist and believed strongly in good design being accessible to all. This belief prompted him to design his now very collectible range of kitchenware:

I am lucky enough to have a few of his pieces but I really want a row of his storage jars in my kitchen once we get round to finishing it! I am so proud that his work is still desirable to all those kitchenalia addicts.
