Poole was set up in as Carter and Co. By the early twentieth century, Poole Pottery began to produce more decorative and ornamental pottery intended for display, and since then they have never looked back. Poole have become one of the leading factories producing art pottery alongside their tablewares and this has made them a very collectable factory. Art pottery manufacturers and designers tend to specialise in different things and in some cases it is novel shapes or surface patterns, in others the emphasis is on glaze effects. In the case of Poole Pottery, from its early days to the present the main thing that makes their art pottery distinctive is the use of hand painted decoration. The earliest pieces of art pottery made by Poole in the period from had rich lustre glazes with almost a metallic sheen to them. During the s Poole used the influences and styles of mediterranean peasant pottery for their own modern ornamental wares.

Poole Pottery is probably best known for the colourful hand painted floral designs created by Truda Carter after her arrival at the Pottery in Drawing on many contemporary influences, these were painted on to hand thrown pots in standard shapes and sizes made from the deep red clay found locally. The clay pots were slipped with a white clay on the outside and the decoration was painted on to a clear glaze.
The reaction between the glaze and the colours in the kiln gave the pots a unique depth and warmth of colour. Pottery in the traditional style was produced at Poole in one form or another from the ‘s until Floating bowl pattern OM by Ruth Pavely.

As a company, it was founded in on Poole quayside, where it continued to produce pottery by hand before moving its factory operations away from the quay in Production continued at a new site in Sopers Lane until its closure in Poole Pottery was originally “Carter’s Industrial Tile Manufactory” and it was this company that provided the financial foundation for the later “Poole Pottery”. The Carter company produced much of the ceramic tiling used on London Underground stations built in the s and, of particular note, made the relief tiles, designed by Stabler, showing symbols of London—some of these can still be seen on stations such as Bethnal Green.
Much of the traditional range was based on the work of the chief designer in the s, Truda Carter; her original designs were interpreted by “paintresses” who added their own individuality to the pieces, all of which were handmade. Robert Jefferson joined in the s, and alongside such artisans as Leslie Elsden designer of the “Aegean” Range , Guy Sydenham, thrower and designer of the “Atlantis” range, Tony Morris, developer of the early “Delphis” Studio wares with Jefferson, and paintresses such as Carol Cutler, Diana Davies, Ros Sommerfeld, Ann Godfrey and others, including the three Wills sisters, Laura, Julia and Carolyn, produced two lines which are probably the most famous of all Poole’s output: Delphis and Aegean.
Delphis is easily recognised: it is psychedelic, with vibrant colours and designs inspired by artists such as Mondrian , Warhol , Matisse and Pollock. Aegean is more subtle, with the sgraffito technique used to create the “silhouette” patterns that make this range so recognisable.
Established in , the Carter Company was primarily concerned with the manufacture of tiling and architectural products. It was Jesse Carter’s son Owen who developed the art pottery.
