This 1970s ceramic relief by the painter and potter, Pamela Nash (b.1925) is perhaps the potter’s most ambitious and unique piece from the 1970s. With magnetic birds, pine cones, and even a flower, you can change it up according to your daily fancy.


Pamela Nash studied at Willesden School of Arts and Crafts. She began potting with her husband, Ernest Collyer, in the 1950s, and her ceramics appeared variously in shows at the Federation of British Artists, the Whitechapel Art Gallery, and The Smithsonian in Washington. She and Collyer moved from Hampstead to Winchelsea in the 1970s, where together they made distinctive ceramic pots and boxes with impressed markings, filled with experimental jewel-like pools of melted glass.
