Deco to Modern


Charlotte Rhead was born in 1885. Her father was the well-known ceramics designer Frederick Rhead from whom she learned many of her pottery skills. She is best known as a specialist in the technique called tube-lining, a technique pioneered by William Moorcroft.

Her first job was with T&R Booth in Burslem, and from there she joined Wood & Sons in 1913. In 1920 she joined Bursley Ltd, an art pottery set up by her father and Harry Wood. Then in 1926 she moved to Burgess and Leigh, the producers of 'Burleigh Ware' ceramics, training a small team in the art of tube lining.

Her most famous period was between 1931 and 1943 with A.G. Richardson at Cobridge who produced and marketed her collection of Art Nouveau and Art Deco inspired tube-lined patterns under the 'Crown Ducal' name. She returned to Wood & Sons as Art Director in 1943 and died in 1947.
