Glyn Colledge (1922-2000) was a designer of British ceramics who worked for Denby Pottery in Derbyshire, England from 1938-83.  He also studied at Denby College of Art in the period from 1946-56. He is best known for his hand painted ceramics, notably the floral designs called Glyn-Ware. While this were quite traditional in design he also designed the highly-sought after Cheviot ware range. With their atomic/sputnik inspired motifs they have come to typify the style of the 1950s in ceramics. These pieces, along with the Tigo ware range by Tibor Reich put Denby, along with Midwinter, Beswick and Poole at the forefront of the midcentury style in Britain in the 1950s.
