Seriously crazy ... are these very collectable Dan? I don't think I've ever heard of him before... I'm presuming he's still potting?

Yes Pip, Wally is seriously HOT property at the moment,the teapot shown above would set you back at least £700.00 I would think.
The starting pieces for a collector would be small,simple creamers or jugs which have been sold recently for £60.00 to £80.00 on ebay!

I finally managed to get 'my' Wally Keeler piece for the collection last year. Nice and simple but still classic Keeler. 11.3cm (height)

My three Keeler pots arrived today, I love the deep blue saltglaze used on the teapot but I'm not as fond of the grey used on the bird jug & the Wellington jug so I'll probably sell the 2 jugs to help fund the teapot purchase

I learned a lot from watching this and was in awe of Wally's skill, he makes it look so easy!

I have watched several established potters at work but Wally gets such a high quality finish when connecting handles,spouts etc, I do like the factory finish look to this style of pottery and without turning at the leather hard stage to erase potting errors - quite a rare talent
