stoneware studio pottery jug - Wsp mark - Washington Studio Pottery?

Post by skipposal on February 28th 2013, 8:10 pm

This was a charity shop find last year. I couldn't believe how rough the stoneware was, the potter must have had incredibly tough hands. The mottled glaze around the rim and covering the inside is also very distinctive, I assume the spots are due to the iron rich inclusions in the clay? I think it's a nice shape and I used it to serve mulled wine in this Christmas and it was much admired Happy . I thought the maker would be really easy to identify as it has a clear WSP mark, how wrong I was. I assume the P stands for pottery? I'm sure you guys will know immediately of course! 14.3cm (height)

SK, there are a thousand well made pots on this thread that Will be lost

Came across something similar on eBay, a creasted mug, but without a mark. Labelled Washington Studio Pottery, Tyne & Wear. A possible lead.

Reminds me strongly of Adrian Lewis-Evans, so maybe a link?
