Of the many styles of vessels thrown, Bob Washington’s is arguably best known for his tall, slim pots. You can see an example today at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
London’s V & A is home to several pieces of Bob’s work – a bowl and five pots.
His earliest student work can be found in room 142, where it is displayed beside William Staite-Murray, his tutor at the Royal College of Art.
The 1930s marked a distinct turning point in British ceramics. Works were recognised for their artistic merits.
