Bernard Moore


Location and period of operation:

Bernard Moore




 (See sources)

Originally Bernard Moore and his younger brother Samuel Vincent Moore manufactured china tableware and high quality ornamental pieces at St. Mary's Works, Longton. 

[see: Moore Bros]

At the end of this partnership it appears the Samuel left the industry and Bernard became a 'Consultant Potter' at Woolfe Street in Stoke. He specialised in glaze effects and became renowned for his researches into the glazes of the Far East, producing stunning examples of flambé, sang de boeuf and luster effects, Persian Blues and aventurine and crystalline glazes.
