Heals pottery bowl

Post by carolineathalls on December 3rd 2012, 2:12 pm

Hi,

I am hoping you can help me with a little more info about this interesting bowl. It appears to say 'made for heals'. I would like to know the designer, it looks like a Lucie Rie piece but I don't recognise the mark associated on it. I would be grateful for any help you can give, would love to know more about this item and whether it is worth something :)

Thank you

I remember them being on sale in Heal's probably 3 or 4 years ago and they weren't expensive.

I think that I was sent a wholesale catalogue by the maker's before that, as their aim was to supply galleries and craft shops with ranges of inexpensive stoneware pottery. I can't recall their name but will see if I have kept any information.

That was far easier than I imagined and this is taken from their 2001 catalogue.

"B. C. pottery is a small company consisting of two potters, Sarah Butler and Martin Clark. They teamed up in 1993 and started a workshop and gallery in St. Ives, Cornwall. Now based in Bath, they supply leading stores and galleries across the U. K. Items available range from a large selection of tableware, vases and bowls, all of which are made using stoneware clay."

In the catalogue similar bowls to yours were 18 +VAT.

Not sure if they are still in production.

Interesting... any way you could scan that page? I can't find anything on them as a factory.

It also looks SO like this but I guess the sgraffito is further apart?

In photographs they do look similar from the side but the bases of your bowl and a Lucie Rie bowl are completely different and side by side in real life it would be easy to tell them apart.

Not able to scan anything at the moment but will try to take a photograph in the next few days.

I've got a piece by them somewhere; I had assumed that they made it all themselves in England, but it appears from this testimonial that at least some of it was actually outsourced to a workshop in Sri Lanka:
