Vase

Designed by David Puxley, Wedgwood

About 1967

David Puxley was the first studio potter to be employed by Wedgwood. He studied ceramics and sculpture at the Oxford School of Art before joining the company in 1964. Puxley was primarily interested in the design of ceramics and, like his colleagues, was given free reign to experiment with different types of ceramic and glazes. Puxley favored stoneware and earthy glazes, which he formed into classically modern, useful wares.
