Ruskin Pottery

Ruskin Pottery


World famous and highly collectable, Ruskin Pottery was made right here in Sandwell between 1898 and 1935.

The beautiful and unusual glazes that were created by the Ruskin factory in Oldbury Road, Smethwick, were a secret and when the owner of the factory died the secret of these beautiful glazes went with him to the grave.

Ruskin Pottery is on display at Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery and has recently been displayed in a brand new gallery.
