This is a massive site. Anyone thinking of visited here, you'll need a day especially if you're pedantic like me. I think we managed to explore about 2/3rds of it. Once me and Donebythehands
got inside we split off in different directions, trying to keep a mental note of the good bits so we could confer later and swop over. We had a game trying to keep camera gear dry in places as it was pissing down outside, finding it's way through the many cracks in the roof because of all the missing lead.



Cornish Kitchen Ware was first produced in 1926 by T.G.Green & Co in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, a county famed for its pottery. The range’s special characteristic came from the lathe-turning process, which cut clean bands through its beautiful blue slip to show the white clay beneath. It was apparently this that inspired the name, since it reminded one T.G.Green & Co. employee of the clear blues and white-tipped waves of Cornwall.

The range of kitchen and table ware, from the hooped plates to the iconic storage jars, was an immediate success and remained popular from then on. This inspired T.G.Green & Co. to produce more colours of Cornishware, and more ranges, including the spotted Domino Ware and the cream and green Streamline Ware.
