Murray, William Staite (1881-1962)

William Staite  MurrayAn English artist potter, whose key pieces are often large and displayed rich glazes.

Murray set up his own pottery in Rotherhithe (1919–24) and then at Whickham Road, London.

Influenced by Chinese Stoneware, Murray was technically able: his work is skilfully thrown and pieces are often large or tall.

He used rich glazes, fired in kilns he built himself, and decoration was used sparingly to emphasize form.
