Hopfrog X Hornsea

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. A great British design story involving some of the giants of British pattern and ceramic design, Hornsea remains a much loved and influential brand, with a timeless appeal.

Hopfrog is the UK licensing partner of Hornsea Potteries Intellectual properties USA LLC. Located at the historic Hornsea pottery site, this shop offers a blend of vintage and new Hornsea Pottery items alongside the full range of new Hornsea products by UK designers such as Magpie, Storigraphic, Liga, Esk Valley Lampshades, Ada Binks, and Mabel Sheppard.

Dedicated to preserving Hornsea's rich heritage you can chat to Hopfrog owner Nick Burton alongside 25 more talented designers and brands upstairs in the contemporary section of the fair.
