Fairyland Lustre Ware
Many thanks to Kathryn Frearson on the Facebook page for Domythic Bliss for making me aware of the phenomenal artist, Daisy Makeig-Jones, and the Fairyland Lustre Ware she produced in the early 1900s for Wedgwood. I am not that familiar with early 20th c. pottery and vessel-ware, though I do know Rookwood and of course the de Morgans. I was blown away by the work of this phenomenal artist, and now I can't get enough of the stuff!!
Here's an excellent article on Makeig-Jones shared by Kathryn.
And some gorgeous examples from auction sites:
The piece below was featured in a delightful blog post from SurLaLune:
The figures on this last vessel immediately reminded me of Thomas Cooper Gotch's The Child Enthroned.
