Mellor is known to chemists as the author of the monumental work on General and Inorganic Chemistry but he is also a pioneer ceramicist. It was under his direction in 1920 that the British Refractories Research Association was formed which eventually became in 1948 the British Ceramic Research Association. Mellor spent most of his professional career at Stoke-on-Trent working on pottery.
