EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the bustling Royal Albert Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent during the late 1960s. Inside a traditional Staffordshire bottle kiln, we witness a scene of meticulous craftsmanship and hard work. A group of skilled men can be seen diligently setting saggars filled with delicate pottery-wares, preparing them for the intense firing process. The image, captured by Eileen Deste between 1965 and 1968, beautifully encapsulates the essence of Victorian-era pottery works. The atmosphere is brimming with industry as these dedicated workers navigate their way through stacks of saggars, ensuring each piece is carefully placed for optimal firing results. The significance of this photograph lies not only in its portrayal of manual labor but also in its preservation of an era when such craft was at its peak. The Royal Albert Pottery, part of Alfred Meakins Royal Albert & Victoria Potteries empire, stands as a testament to the rich history and heritage associated with Stoke-on-Trent's potteries. Eileen Deste's lens captures not just people at work but also the passion and skill required to create these timeless pieces. This image serves as a reminder that behind every beautiful ceramic creation lies countless hours spent perfecting techniques passed down through generations. As we admire this snapshot frozen in time, let us appreciate both the artistry involved and those who dedicated their lives to preserving this cherished tradition within our industrial past.
