Details

Thomas Allen was one of the greatest ceramic artists of the 19th century. He studied at Somerset House and South Kensington. On returning to Stoke-on-Trent, he was employed in the first instance by the Minton factory, and joined Wedgwood (based at the old Etruria site) around late 1875 or early 1876. Under Allen's influence the output and range of studio and art wares grew greatly, and he was particularly renowned for his production of new tableware designs.

The Wedgwood Museum is proud to highlight some of Thomas Allen’s most important designs such as the Ivanhoe pattern, both on ceramics and on paper. The display will also showcase his influence on the designers who worked alongside him.

Entrance to the museum is free for everyone, every day 10am – 5pm; including the children's Pottery Spotters trail with a prize for every completed activity sheet.
