Joseph Palin Thorley was Director of Design for Soho Pottery from 1918 to 1920 or 1921.
Thorley apprenticed at Wedgwood's and fought in the trenches in France before going to the Soho Pottery. Thorley went from Soho to New Chelsea, to Allerton's before immigrating the U.S. in 1927.
There he worked for the best potteries like Hall and Taylor Smith & Taylor, before going to Williamsburg to make reproductions of their 18th century museum objects.
