This ceramic collection traces the involvement of Miles Mason, the founder of Mason’s Ironstone China, and his successors, in the production of ceramics in Staffordshire. Miles Mason married an heiress; the daughter of Richard Farrar who had established a successful retail business selling imported Oriental porcelain at , Fenchurch St.

Mason continued this business, but after , when the East India Company ceased the bulk importation of Oriental porcelain, he began to manufacture his own wares.

Over the past hundred years or so, almost every object in the domestic kitchen has been adapted to changing needs and fashions of society. But there is one object that is almost unchanged since it was first made over a century ago. Not just any mixing bowl — but THE mixing bowl, the one that almost every house in the country has.

The one that appears on every cookery programme and in every photograph of a modern kitchen. Yes, that generic mixing bowl in a familiar cream colour with a bit of a pattern around the outside that almost everyone owns is not just some random object churned out in their millions in some dusty part of China, but is a year old design classic, and is still made by the same English pottery company.

Although the company itself still has factories in England, sadly production of the mixing bowls themselves moved to an unnamed Western European country recently and over the years different people have owned the company — but wonderfully, it is still the same firm, and the same unchanged mixing bowl design. For a company that has been around for years , and has managed to infiltrate practically every kitchen in the land, it has proven surprisingly difficult to find out much about.

Not much changed for another hundred years until the company was sold in , and again in to its current owners, The Rayware Group. The company has struggled at times, and the only newspaper report I could find was in The Times in October , when the company was facing a sharp decline in sales and called in a marketing expert to help. I looked in some shops, and those that sold mixing bowls, only sold Mason Cash bowls — not just the big classic mixing bowl, but often pudding bowls — and the company is almost as famous for its pet bowls.

Have a look in your kitchen — if there is a earthenware mixing bowl in there, the chances are that on the bottom will be stamped the name of Mason Cash. But had you ever opened a cupboard and thought — ahh, the Mason Cash bowl? So, here is a company that has somehow managed to carry on producing an overtly basic product — the earthenware bowl, with minimal branding and yet defied all the conventional thinking you would learn in a modern business school.

And yet, somehow, the branding is there, in collective memories of children licking the cake mix out of the bowl when mum was baking.

Two more confusing new marks have been found on reproductions of 19th century ceramics. The new marks are applied in dark blue transfer. ACRN found the crown mark on biscuit jars decorated in Mason’s “Japan” style decoration and the ribbon mark on a toast rack with chintz styled decoration. Like other confusing new marks, these two recent additions can be expected to show up on a wide variety of 19th century copies.

These pieces with their facsimiles of old marks were made in China for the antique reproduction wholesale trade.

Many of these containers reveal embossed date, , etc., and are therefore credited to that period. When manufactured in Canada, the name Masons should be.

When he was at teachers college in he took a pottery elective and that was where his passion for clay began. During that period he rediscovered his interest in the Raku firing process. In , he completed an Applied Arts Degree at Monash with a ceramics major.

More recently Mark has started to explore a different firing technique — naked Raku — which is characterised by strong ghostly crackle patterns being transferred to a burnished clay surface through a glaze mask applied over a barrier layer of slip.

Patented by Charles Mason of Staffordshire, England, this simple tableware—​once known as the “poor man’s porcelain”—hit American tables.

John Mason. Mason, along with Voulkos and other west coast artists, blurred the boundaries between traditional ceramics and sculpture in the s and 60s. Mason’s abstract works reflect the spirit of experimentation and aggressiveness embodied by the earlier Abstract Expressionist painters, such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Hans Hofmann.

This particular piece appears to be part of a series of sculptures that were based on the ancient form of the cross, though Mason denied any religious connotation. His crosses were often deconstructions, turned on their edges or featuring double or triple horizontal bars. The work also reflects Mason’s interest in and experimentation with colored glazes.
