About Christopher Dresser. Christopher Dresser was the first industrial designer and co-founder of the Linthorpe pottery. Ornament, shape, colour and function were all important to Dresser’s work. He was inspired by what he saw as ‘perfection’ in nature and by ‘good design’ from all over the world.
In 1876 he visited Japan and was allowed free access by the Emperor. All doors were open to him, and he used this opportunity to observe and study the superior Japanese techniques in ceramic design and production. He brought his new-found knowledge back to Britain, to open the Linthorpe Pottery in Middlesbrough.
Dresser designed over 1,000 pots for the Pottery between 1879 and 1882 and became one of the most influential and innovative ceramic designers of all time. Linthorpe pottery is known and respected worldwide and has become highly collectable.
