Dan - I could be wrong, but I think this is a stoneware range item (this does look to be a stoneware piece), Black Ryden was their earthenware range. Personally I never really like Anita's work - I much prefered Philip Gibson and Sam Johnson's work.

Your earlier comment of not having seen an un-initialled piece, is because that was a glaze effect item - which Justin never signed.

Yep - I also have a huge collection of Cobridge Stoneware (but not a single piece of Black Ryden). Shame it went out of production, although to be honest - I had started to go off it a bit by that time. The designs in the early days were different to Moorcroft and had a nice hard edge to them - I particularly liked the industrial images and fell in love with the product when I first saw the Cobridge bottle ovens image on the front of a mag (shortly before first launch). I went to most of the early collectors days and have some wonderful one off auction bits. But towards the end, the designs could just have easily been standard Moorcroft ones (IMHO)

Thanks you are of course correct,that glaze could never have been fired on earthenware

Just a slight correction Dan. Cobridge Stoneware was Official opened on 16th September 1998 (by Government Minister Richard Caborn).
And certainly the first year of production the apple back stamp was 1998. I know items were produced many months before the offical launch, but not sure if that actually extended back to '97 although they were probably (I guess) doing a few early glaze trials back then.

Also, the corn cockle vase, whilst it was a collectors club item, officially it's the Founder Members vase and came free as part of the subcription. All other collectors club pieces had to be bought.

Right enough of that, you really want to see some vases

A small part of my collection


A rather fine Lizard vase painted and designed by Sam Johnson for the Collectors club auction




Another 'one off' auction item


Trial plate, as far as I know, this never went into production (too complex).


One of Andew Hull fantastic Martin Brothers inspired items


And finally a very rare one off


Yes I know it's just the first Year Plate 1999
but take a look at the back - I took it along to the club open day that year and had it signed by as many workers as possible (designers, painters, etc), as well as Hugh Edwards and his wife.

why not discuss here on the forum Geoff?
also you may want us to replace the @ from the way your email appears here as it could attract a lot of spam mail to that address?

ps
welcome to the forum Most Excellent we look forward to seeing pics of your collection (hint)

I haven't looked for ages. But just had a quick look and there doesn't seem to be much at all - except very expensive 'buy iy now' items.

Are you refering to glaze items or most things. I've rarely seen the image designs go cheaply, but the glaze pecies where produced in quite large numbers and sold cheaply in the first place (or at least many were) - I've got some nice ones that were sold from the factory shop for ú5-ú15.

I doubt the things I might be tempted to buy are going cheep. Having so much of it, only the very rarest items would be of any interest, and even then it would need to be something a little different, rather than a lot of what they did towards the end. But I do know a few things exist that might tempt me.

Yep, a VERY NICE collection Most Excellent

I'm rather keen on Andrew Hulls work myself. Errol and Victor are ones I would still like to get. I don't see him in your pic's but Herman is another I really should get.

Do you still buy his stuff now he has set up his own company?

What back stamp does the cat have / when did you buy it? Perhaps it was produced just before they closed and so never got a chance to go into production? Might be worth asking Andrew about it, if it's one of his.

Guess I'll have to find the time to photograph a few more of mine now.
