Small slipware jug by John Pollex, from his earlier, traditional, phase.

He has changed his mark over time. This jug has a later mark, where as the large jug in the following post has an earlier mark.

'old' of course,is relative. He changed from traditional slipware.to the highly coloured items,about 30 years ago...

Not very well worded admittedly. But recently I read a discussion on here that talked about the recreation of "old" styles - including the sort of stunning slip-ware that John Pollex used to do as evidenced by the above posts - and I was intending to contrast it with his vibrant, modern use of colour. He began this about 30 years ago & is still doing it.

I do also. I wonder how many potters encompass such a range of style.

Yes, this one is awe-inspiring.

And the contrast with these could hardly be greater!

I do like the old slip Style like this black thick treacle glaze, a bit like the Thomas Toft Family of potters.

Small studio vase with double seal mark? - John Pollex

Post by Mordeep on August 31st 2015, 3:07 pm

Got this tiny studio vase with two seals impressed on the base. It seems very familiar but not sure when I have seen it before. Any help welcome.

Early John Pollex. Maybe he was trying out a new seal.

Large beautiful early charger

Thought I would share this with you, Pollexy people. The above is a large 18" charger dated 1983 on the back and is absolutely phenomenal and apart from some crazing is in perfect condition. I really love his early slipware - so full of character but I also really love his 'new' quirky stuff - a true artist i think.
