Artist's Description

Oil. 80 × 80cm

‘Experts calculated that in the heyday there were up to 4,000 bottle kilns in Stoke-on-Trent with as many as 2,000 still standing in the 1950’s. The Clean Air Act of 1953 sounded the death-knell for the smoky, coal fired oven. There are 47 still standing today – all are listed buildings.’
