Yet more modernist teapots – Martin Hunt and Ray Finch

 Another 70s classic. Contrast designed by Martin Hunt/Queensberry Hunt for Hornsea’s Lancaster Pottery. It won a Design Award in 1975. The other one is a lovely undecorated tenmoku black teapot by Ray Finch. The glaze has a sprinkle of yellow dots across the upper surfaces. It could have been made anytime from the 70s to the early 2000s but it links naturally to the Ulla Procope GA teapots as much as to the Leach school. When you look at it like that you can arguably see Arabia and Scandinavian design in both.
