Artist Spotlight: Reco Capey

Reco Capey joined Doulton’s Burslem factory in 1915 and returned at the end of 1918 after serving in the war. He designed for Doulton’s new luster collection, notably hexagonal boxes and vases depicting stag-hunting scenes in silhouette and heraldic beasts in the manner of William de Morgan. 

Reco Capey was born and educated in the Potteries, attending the Burslem School of Art where he exhibited a luster jar in a national competition in 1914.  After his brief time at the Burslem studio, he went on to study at the Royal College of Art in 1919, returning there to teach until 1935. He became art director for Yardley in 1928, designing perfume bottles, packaging, and display materials. During the 1930s Capey produced some designs for the Lambeth factory and these were generally simple, streamlined shapes with matt stoneware glazes. A selection was shown at the Royal Academy Exhibition of Art and Industry in 1935.
