The Bushy Heath Pottery was established by Ida Perrin at 'The Cottage', Bushy Heath, Hertfordshire in 1921. Perrin was an accomplished artist and sculptress and a figure in the London art scene of the times. Little is known of the pottery except that Perrin encouraged the work of Frederick Passenger who had been an associate of William de Morgan. Passenger produced ornamental ware with lustre decoration, inscribed 'De M' on the base to signify use of the famous potter's methods. The Pottery closed in 1933.
