Huge Brown Stoneware Vase - Great Braxted Pottery

Post by r-and-f on November 5th 2012, 4:05 pm

This is a mighty pot, about 33 cms tall and weighing some 4.5 kgs. It appears to have been hand-thrown in two sections in a buff stoneware, with a textured outer surface covered in a thinly-applied matt brown glaze.  Glossy tenmoku-type glaze inside.

At first sight I thought it had a vaguely Scandinavian look and feel, but then I spotted the mark of Jennifer Hayes in the book and contacted her, but she has confirmed that it isn't hers.

Any ideas or suggestions most welcome.

Looks like the same mark as Great Braxted Pottery c.1980s

Thank you Naomi - you're amazing! No idea how you make these connections!

It looks absolutely right, but to double-check I'll need to mount a major expedition into the deepest recesses of my attic where unattractive unidentified pots get banished.

I can't find anything online about Great Braxted Pottery. Does anyone have any information?

I've not been able to find anything. Seems it was one of those hundreds or thousands of individuals who set up in a village producing pots for a while before disappearing into anonymity. We have something similar at a village called Steventon. No one knows who the potter was, and the pottery was named after the village.
