It reminds me of some of Pru Green's early work, when she was still at Alvingham

I've got a feeling it was GT, I'm pretty sure I knew it once.. I think I even I'd someone pot with the same mark at some point, but I can't remember who it was by sorry Shrugs

Help with ID please - Terry Godby

Post by lindylou08 on December 11th 2012, 2:25 pm

I'm sure one (or some/all!) of you will be able to help me with identifying this lovely pot. It's 9.5 cm  and the decoration appears to be of sycamore 'wings'





I would be very grateful for any pointers.  Thanks

Found a mug with a similar decoration on yobunny, that was id-ed as Thomas Plowman. However the stamp is a bit different, but potters do change their marks over the years so it's still a possible.

I see what you mean, but think the Plowman piece looks more like dragonflies than sycamore seeds!
The closest mark that I've come across is Christopher Green but not been able to find any image of his work as yet

There's a picture of his mark on ebay if you search "CHRISTOPHER GREEN STUDIO POTTERY MULTICOLOURED DRIP GLAZED EARTHENWARE JUG"

ok found it. Does look very similar.
Do potters vary the position they put their mark on the pots?

Does look very similar.

Oh, I didn't think it did. Christopher Green's is an impressed G, where as on these the letter sticks out.

This one has the same mark too.

Still waiting for an Id.

If you find your post, Lindylou, it's worth posting the link here so we can find it if/when it's identified.
