This is a collectable lustre tile - made by Margery Clinton at her Templelands Studio in Dunbar.

It is a lovely tile - and she is probably looking to early de Morgan tiles for inspiration.

It features a big sunflower type bloom and it has been printed in claret red glazes with her special gold lustre glazes as part of the design. It has been hard to photograph these - as they are quite reflective.

It has her printed backstamps on the back of the tile. And they are also annotated in a pen or pencil by Clinton at the top left on the back with stock numbers or similar

As usual for Clinton - she has used pottery blank tiles and simply added her own design and glazes as decoration.

Clinton's tiles are rare survivors and probably items for the collector of Scottish studio pottery. This is a lovely tile by her - and it certainly shows the influence of De Morgan on her work at this time.

Each tile is 6 inches square.

HISTORY: Margery Clinton (1931–2005) was a specialist in reduction lustre glazes. She studied painting at the Glasgow School of Art between 1949 and 1953 and was part of the Young Glasgow group, whose inaugural exhibition was held at the McLellan Galleries in 1958.

She undertook her postgraduate study at the Royal College of Art, London, researching reduction lustre glazes, an interest she later developed with great success.

She also undertook a number of notable architectural commissions later in her life, and her work with tiles was regarded as spectacular. She has been exhibited at the Tate, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Glasgow Art Gallery and the Royal Museum of Scotland.

An outstanding ceramic mural, The Physic Garden, commissioned for the tercentenary of Mary Erskine School, in Edinburgh, typifies her imaginative portrayal of medicinal herbal plants in six panels, in memory of the founder's husband, James Hair, an Edinburgh druggist. Appropriately, she chose Jonah and the Whale as the subject for a large decorative panel in the new Musselburgh Baths.

She was particularly interested in lustre glazing in Islamic art, and she travelled widely, attracting the attention of the Sultan of Oman and the King of Jordan. She executed commissions for both, and for the Duke of Edinburgh.

Currently, examples of her work are currently on display in the Scottish Design Galleries at the V&A Museum in Dundee, and the Museum of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile.
