This is a lovely Troika vase decorated by Teo Bernatowitz who only worked at the Troika Pottery c1974 for 18 months when it was based in Newlyn in Cornwall, England. It is a very colourful vase coloured heavily in blue with patches of white glaze really bringing out the abstract decoration.

Both these pieces of Troika Pottery date from when the pottery was based in Newlyn in Cornwall, England. The Pottery moved to Newlyn in 1970 and remained there until it closed down in 1983.
This popular Cornish pottery first started producing pottery in c1963 and unfortunately only lasted for 20 years closing down in 1983. During this time it moved from its original location in St Ives to Newlyn in Cornwall in c1970.
A range of people worked at the pottery over the years so you’ll often find different decorator marks on the base – a particular decorator is often a popular theme of collecting Troika!
The pottery produced a whole range of different shapes from smaller pieces such as Marmalade and Cube vases, medium pieces like the Spice vase or Rectangular vase to large pieces like the Double base vase, a range of plaques and a whole range of different style lamp bases. There really is a shape for everyone!
This particular Troika coffin has been decorated by Annette Walters and dates from when the pottery was based in Newlyn in Cornwall, England. It has a bright blue base colour to which the designs on both sides really stands out.
The Troika Pottery made a whole range of different shaped and sized vases and vessels – so there really is a shape for everyone!
This Troika vase has four textured sides and a deep blue rounded glazed top. On one side you’ll see it has a face pattern with eyes, nose and mouth with the eyes and mouth picked out in brown.
The Troika Pottery was originally based in St Ives in Cornwall, England, but later, c1970, moved to Newlyn where this piece was made. It continued producing pottery in Newlyn, Cornwall until its eventual decline and closure in 1983 – only 20 years after first opening!
The Troika Marmalade vase is a popular Troika pottery shape – partly due to it’s mixture of textured and smooth finish, it’s size makes it easily place-able in any home and its affordability to collectors.
Troika Pottery’s collectable appeal has been stronger in recent years than at any time since its 1960s/70s heyday.
It’s perhaps not surprising, then, that contemporary art website “The Art House” will be producing a new studio collection of artwork paying homage to the designs and themes of the Troika Pottery.
The Troika Collection 2008 will be available soon on their website and you can find an example picture and a little more information on the The Art House Blog.
The single picture (the second one actually is Troika) doesn’t give much idea of what to expect, but I will certainly be interested to see what’s on offer and will post here when more information is available.
