The Hornsea Muramics Wall Plaques were designed by John Clappison whilst at Hornsea Pottery in the early 1970s. They were only produced for a short period  from 1971-1972 and each one was unique. We take a look at these interesting Muramic wall plaques with an associated price guide.

How the Muramic Wall Plaques Made?

Each Muramic wall plaque was cut from a hand rolled clay panel and then hand-decorated making each one unique. Glazes were then applied often by screen printing and many feature small discs/clay buttons. Once completed the panels were mounted on canvas or boards, and some were framed.

What designs and scenes were used on Muramics?

Muramics ranged from simple boarded examples featuring: animals such as fish, turtles, elephants, lions, crabs and birds; characters such as clowns, astronauts, jesters, and historical figures; and larger framed examples ranging from Adam and Eve, buildings, horse and carriage etc.
