Footnotes

  • Coming from a family long associated with the pottery industry, Vyse was apprenticed to Doulton as a modeller in 1896. Having gained two gold medals for sculpture he obtained National Scholarships at the Royal College of Art for Sculpture 1905-1907 and 1907-1910. And he was awarded a travelling scholarship in 1909, which enabled him to study in Italy. After his training he executed a number of portraits and other works, exhibiting three at the Royal Academy and was elected member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1911. This work pre-dates the ceramic workshop he shared with his wife Nell Vyse in Cheyene Walk, London.
