Fans of Andrew Hull’s fabulous works will be pleased to hear that his biography has just been published. Kathy Niblett, who curated the world-class collection of modern ceramics at The Potteries Museum, has produced a beautiful illustrated book about Andrew’s artistic career. The story begins in 1986 when he discovered the comical birds created by the Victorian Martin Brothers. His first job in the ceramic industry was designing fantasy sculptures for the Enchantica collection followed by a period at Cobridge Stoneware, where he first experimented with Martin style grotesques. He now has his own business designing brilliant birds, vases and tiles for the Andrew Hull Pottery.
Pascoe and Company occasionally aquires some very rare figurines which have been used to illustrate the Royal Doulton Figures book. This is the first time they have been on the market for over 30 years and in many cases only one example has ever been found. Some wonderful colorways were not discovered in time for the publication of the Figures Book and they are recorded here for the first time.
