An illustrated talk by Michael Swift: George Tinworth of Royal Doulton Pottery and his Terracota Panels

George Tinworth’s terracotta panel “Our Lord on His way to the Crucifixion”, in the North Quire Aisle, is one of the most loved attractions in Truro Cathedral.  We shall hear the story of this great Arts & Craftsman, who rose from humble beginnings to become Chief Designer at Royal Doulton Pottery.

Truro’s enormous panel was the first one he made and is now the only one still on public view.
