Susan Williams-Ellis Set


Susan Williams-Ellis (1918 – 2007) was an English-Welsh pottery designer, who was best known for co-founding Portmeirion Pottery. She studied ceramics with Bernard and David Leach at Dartington and studied under Henry Moore during the 1940s at Chelsea School of Art. In 1960 she transformed two broken-down potteries in Stoke-on-Trent into one of the country’s most affluent pottery companies, Portmeirion Pottery.

In 1963, Susan’s futuristic designs put Portmeirion on the map with the launch of its abstract relief-moulded Totem range, a coffee set  consisting of a tall cylinder coffee pot, eight tall cups and saucers and a milk jug and open sugar bowl.
