Molds Left to Gather Dust

Or ‘Mouldy Molds and the Saga of Spode’. Spode, after a pre-eminent china maker, saw its factory closed down in 2008. The website now belongs to Stoke council and is falling into disrepair. The molds with which Spode’s greatest wares had been made now accumulate dust in a forgotten retailer. Spode, and indeed Stoke, are an incredible element of our heritage. Some of Spode’s greatest styles are now created by the brand’s owners Portmerion, but primarily the excellent name is all but gone. The Spode factory is an incredible element of our heritage. There is a visitor centre, run by wonderful volunteers – go visit! Spode is in the town of Stoke, a single of the 5 towns of Stoke-on-Trent. Taken 19 October 2014. I spent the day touring our pottery past with Pete Taylor (@ForrestGrump), whose significantly much more great images of the day are a should.
