The old...Nelson McCoy pottery circa 1925. In 1995 in San Francisco I started collecting aqua, green and cream pieces of Nelson McCoy and McCoy pottery, produced from the 1920s-40s. As I'm rarely in the US to search for more, I sometimes buy McCoy pottery on eBay.
The new...Roseberry-Winn aqua leaf candlesticks circa 2005. I first saw these candlesticks pictured in the American edition of House & Garden magazine. When I looked at Roseberry-Winn's website, I was struck by how similar the glazes were to those employed by Nelson McCoy. So I emailed Michael Roseberry and bought the candlesticks pictured, as well as a set in turquoise. Besides producing beautiful teapots, cups, mugs, vases, etc. Roseberry-Winn also makes tiles to order.
Roseberry-Winn is based in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Michael Roseberry is from Texas, has a master's in French and has lived in France. At the age of six, Bruce Winn became fascinated with pottery. He currently teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design.
