Lion and Unicorn Specializes in charles vyse art Pottery

Charles Vyse was born in 1884 in the heart of the Staffordshire pottery industry in Burslem, England. He was part of a family of potters, and at age 14, he was apprenticed to Doulton in Burslem as a modeler and designer. Henry Doulton noticed his potential and encouraged him to attend the Hanley Art School, where he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art in London.

At the RCA, Charles Vyse studied sculpture, and upon completion of his studies, he became a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 1911. The following year, he studied at the Camberwell School of Art.
