Henry Hatton Beck (1901-1994) was born in Cassilis, Victoria. At his pottery studio in Oakleigh, he established a working relationship with Merric Boyd in nearby Murrumbeena. During the 1930s, Hatton worked in commercial potteries in Melbourne and in 1939 married Lucy Boyd. The pair set up Altamira Pottery in Murrumbeena and in 1943, sold the pottery to Arthur Boyd. Hatton Beck continued to make pottery until his mid eighties.
Hatton painted or incised his post-war work 'Beck'.
