It's much more wonky in person (intentionally! Big Laughter) It's also nowhere near as heavy as you'd think.

Not someone I'm familiar with so I went onto his website and was rather disappointed. There was nothing on there as good as your vase, which looks superb.

I suppose that the twee pieces pay the bills?

I actually like a lot of his "twee" pieces too, especially some of the comical animal sculptures.

Though I suspect your right and they are probably far more commercially popular than my vase is Big Laughter

Would it surprise you to find out is has a copper lustre finish? Big Laughter (Not all over though and the lustre itself has been sgraffito decorated)

The taller narrower one went for more than I was prepared to pay Big Laughter

The one I bought I bought went for exactly my max bid Cheeky Excellent

Never thought it would be something you liked, or I probably would have done! Shock

Stoneware Fish dish

Post by denbydump on March 10th 2017, 8:54 am

A dish with a slight 3-d effect on the rim. Could it be Dart? No marks visible.

I've come across this decoration before but it might take me a while to remember it. Not Dart. I think it's Willie Carter

Yes it maybe. The pinks greens and blues are similar to my coffee can on the thread.
