quality of Johnson Brothers art deco period production ranks among
the very best. The clear cut lines and complimentary restrained
decoration were highly thought of in design circles during the
1920s and 1930s. With Johnson Brothers art deco less is definitely
more. The Studio (1936) critical review of ceramics
production recognised the modernist designs of Johnson Brothers
for high artistic values and principles in the machine-age: "their
aim is to produce earthenware bodies of fine texture and colour...
to encourage decoration in printing, lithography and stamping
which will show a real appreciation of these more mechanised
techniques and enable the artist to produce honest work... not the
'mass production' travesties of hand-painting to which one is
accustomed." The renown ceramic artist designer Gordon Forsyth was
also a great fan, praising Johnson Brothers as an "outstanding
example of excellent cheap production."
