The potter Edward Hughes is one of the masters of the Anglo-Oriental stoneware tradition. This splendid charger is decorated with freely trailed white slip. The deep olive green glaze, with its "hare's fur" effect, is derived from Red How ash, one of several ashes sourced locally in Cumbria by Hughes.
