Buckfast Abbey

Mary Gibson-Horrocks (an early Leach student) and Gregory Tingay as Brother Alexander produced some gorgeous work. I love the proportions of this and the simple decoration and the unusual glaze colour. Under-rated work IMO.

Mary Gibson Horrocks is probably almost unique,as she worked both at Leach St Ives,and with Michael Cardew. This particular shape is almost atypical.

Mary is either unique or she's not..................... and she's not. Cheeky

I like her pots though.

One was talking about her experience. I don't know any others that did the Leach/Cardew track in the 40's/50's. Tho no doubt someone else does.Hence the 'almost'.
Any more hairs you wanna split? Laughter

It was rotten of me I know but I just couldn't stop myself!

You are quite right in that she is unique in being one of the few to have worked with Bernard Leach and Michael Cardew.

Besides Michael Cardew, who fits the bill, the others that I am aware of are Robert Blatherwick, David Stannard (from USA), Peter Stichbury (NZ potter, who worked with Cardew in Abuja), Gwyn Hanssen Pigott (Australia), Chantal Donoyer (France) and Michael Cartwright.

First one I've found although I'm sure there's loads of them about.

I couldn't read it in the shop.

It's really enjoyable/interesting buying pots bringing them home and finding out the history.

Little bud vase with sgraffito swirls. The mark should have a running stag (a fast buck, I suppose) in the centre, but only a hoof and the tip of an antler have registered.
