Hornsea Potteries was founded in 1949 by brothers Colin and Desmond Rawson. Driven by a wide array of design influences the pottery quickly grew from being a  purveyor of seaside tourist trinkets to the largest  studio pottery in the world, employing over 700 people. Hornsea’s rapid growth was generated by widespread popularity and inspirational design. 

Located away from the traditional ceramics heartland in Staffordshire, Hornsea developed unique and groundbreaking techniques and designs many of which were influenced by the Rawson’s textile backgrounds.

Hornsea is a great British design story involving some of the giants of British pattern and ceramic design, such as John Clappison .Today, Hornsea remains a much loved and influential brand, with a timeless appeal. 

In 2020 Hopfrog designed a range of craft beer glasses to pay tribute to the iconic Hornsea designs. Hopfrog now has a growing number of new Hornsea products available that go back to the future - beautifully blending the modern with the past.
