Coffee pot

Roger Fry for the Omega Workshops Ltd, 1918

As soon as Roger Fry learned to make his own ceramics, he became passionate about producing strikingly simple white and black tableware, such as this coffee-pot. He also made a series of strikingly modern black dishes and bowls, which were sold at the Omega Workshops in Bloomsbury, to a small group of wealthy or artistic clients who appreciated the radical quality of these designs for the home.
