Young Maiden Plaque, incised and glazed earthenware

Dworski, born in what is now Croatia, established the Wye Pottery after moving to Wales in 1954. This exquisite plaque is typical of his work, using rich, opaque tin glazes, infused with deep colour, and, as here in the girl’s hair, touches of golden lustre.
