When I was a child my Mum and Dad used to take me and my brother to the Hornsea Pottery factory in Lancaster. Me and my brother were far more interested in the playground but what I wouldn't give to get into that factory shop now. I love the bold designs of Hornsea Pottery and have a collection of the iconic Heirloom and Saffron designs.
There's a great article about the pottery on The Modernist website. It's well worth a read.
