    Robert ('Bob') Minkin - Designer (1928 - 2012)

    Robert, or Bob, Minkin was born in Ramsgate in 1928 and joined Wedgwood as Chief Designer in 1955 after training at the Royal College of Art. Thirteen years later he was appointed Group Designer and moved with his team to the new circular design studio opened in 1968 (now demolished as a result of site re-development), and in 1979 he became Design Director. A number of distinctive tableware patterns were designed by him during the 1950s, and he also produced designs for basalt. In 1988, Robert was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Art. He retired from Wedgwood in September 1989 and died in 2012.
