Enoch Boulton

[ Web Site Index ]


pottery artist, Enoch Boulton who served his apprenticeship at Grimwades somewhere between 1900 and 1908/9. 

Prior to that and/or during his apprenticeship he attended the Burslem School of Art as did some of his more famous contemporaries such as Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper and others.

Following his apprenticeship at Grimwades, Enoch Boulton joined the Carlton Ware pottery in 1908/9 where he worked his way up to Chief Designer, replacing Horace Wain c. 1921/1922.  During his time at Carlton Ware he was responsible for most of its most beautiful patterns that are widely collected today.
Enoch Boulton was apparently lured from Carlton Ware c.1929/1930 to the Crown Devon Fieldings pottery where he worked as Chief Designer until 1950.  At Crown Devon again his art deco designs caused a style explosion.  His work for Crown Devon is also much admired by art deco fans and is also highly prized.
