Murray was born in New Zealand in 1892 and became an architect and designer, working for Wedgwood in their Staffordshire Potteries, Murray was responsible for the design of some much loved ceramic, metal and glassware. Mostly associated for the range of plain, crisply modelled earthenware bowls, vases and jug sets which were first made in cream earthenware and black basalt.  From the end of 1933 new matt glazes designed by Norman Wilson were produced.  Available in a matt white finish (Moonstone), matt straw, April green, dark green, turquoise and matt grey.
