Format: Hardcover
I am an avid collector of Portmeirion pottery. There, I've admitted it - for a while it seemed that Portmeirion was a byword for kitch and usually bad taste amongst the Denby and Wedgewood designs available over the years. Portmeirion can be bad taste, as demonstrated by some of the designs illustrated here, but it can also be innovative, imaginative and trend setting. A case in point would be that some Portmeirion designs could be confused by the unsuspecting Hornsea Pottery of the 70's, except that Portmeirion is of a superior quality than Hornsea could ever hope to attain! The book is an eye opener in respect to the illustrious career of Susan Williams Ellis - a much maligned figure in the world of ceramics. Susan's designs have influenced modern popluist ceramics on a scale that makes Portmeirion Potteries a market leader within the EU and the US. Consistent high quality and constant updating of designs (prints) as demonstrated with the Botanic Garden range, proves that not only is Portmeirion populist but also moving with the times in an ever changing econmic climate. I am biased in my appreciation of Portmeirion but as with anything - don't knock it until you've tried it. In fact the only criticism of this book that I have, is that there isn't enough information! However, Portmeirion deserves it's rightful place within ceramica along with the Denby's, Wedgewoods and dare I say it... Royal Crown Derby's of this world!

A great book for the Portmeirion collector and very comprehensive. Good selection of high quality colour and black and white photos of the different designs. Only very slight criticism might be the irrelevance of some of the first chapter going into such detail about the life of Susan William-Ellis, but a minor detail in what is otherwise an excellent book.

A really interesting book for collectors of Portmerion pottery. Lovely coloured plates and the history of all patterns. I also love the family history.
