Deborah Sears, painter, designer and owner of Isis, has collected 17th century English Delftware for many years. From this enthusiasm rose Isis Ceramics, and a range of tin glaze patterns and shapes which evoke the spirit of 17th and 18th century England. In Oxford, where the Thames is known as the Isis, the art of tin glazed ceramics continues to grow. From 1568 when the first tin glazed wares replaced wooden trenchers and pewter plates, English Delftware brought a fresh lively decorative quality to the table.
