About the Paolozzi Collection
dding a vibrant, contemporary explosion of colour, our Paolozzi pattern is based on collage designs by the ‘Father of British Pop Art’, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005).
Combining beautifully bold statement pieces with more subtly patterned tableware, this attention-grabbing new range brings a lively new energy to your dining table.
ur new Paolozzi range celebrates Royal Doulton’s London design heritage and pays homage to one of the most exciting and iconic British artists of the late twentieth century.
Renowned for his vivid graphic collages and flamboyant use of contrasting colours, Eduardo Paolozzi captured the imagination of the British public. His work is still turning heads at venues across the city – see his sculptures outside the British Library, The Design Museum and Euston station, as well as his famous mosaic tiles inside Tottenham Court tube station.

In 1994 Sir Eduardo Paolozzi gave the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art a large number of his works. In 1999 the National Galleries of Scotland opened the Dean Gallery to display this collection and to stage a remarkable recreation of his studio.
The studio is divided into areas for different types of activity: desks for reading and working with paper, shelves for reference books, a large central table for modelling and working with plaster casts, and a simple bunk for resting. Visiting the gallery is a fascinating way to learn more about Paolozzi’s life, the themes that run through his work and the inspiration he found in the world around him.
