Hoy - studio potter and designer. A website dedicated to her life
and work. This site aims to provide its visitors with access to
information, documents, photographs, drawings and ceramics collection,
much of it having belonged to Agnete.
This website is organised by the niece of Agnete Hoy and
besides providing useful information it is hoped that the site will stimulate
interest in Agnete Hoy and her work, and become a forum for informed
discussion about her work.

As an artist potter Agnete Hoy managed successfully
to create a bridge between industrial ceramics and work of the
studio potters. Having studied in Copenhagen she went on to work
for the Holbaek and Saxbo potteries in the late 1930’s before
returning to England. Agnete’s Danish experience was to make her
ideally suited to develop her creativity within the English ceramic
industry during the war years and following period.
technical expertise related to glazes and firing was gained on
the factory floor and used to produce her highly creative and
distinctive designs for production at both Buller’s in Stoke-on-Trent
and Doulton Lambeth Wares.
We intend to
create a bulletin board inviting you to contribute information
about Agnete Hoy, your own examples of her work, information for
collectors on works for sale, where her work can be seen, etc.
