Michael Cardew 1901-1983

Post by studio-pots on Tue Jul 23, 2013 8:09 pm

Michael Cardew was described by Bernard Leach, as being his best pupil, so I think that he does at least deserve his own thread here on the Forum.

Not only that he was one of the most significant potters of the British studio pottery movement and arguably one of the finest slipware potters of all time.

The slipware that he produced at the Leach Pottery and at Winchcombe has become most sought after in recent times but you are going to have to make do with an image of a stoneware tenmoku jug, I'm afraid.

The jug above was made at his pottery at Wenford Bridge in Cornwall probably during the early 1970s and it had the Wenford Bridge mark as well as Cardew's personal seal as shown below: -



..... and yes you are correct these seals are from another pot rather than the jug but are identical.

Most of his earlier slipware was made at Winchcombe where most of his work would be marked with the Winchcombe seal and personal seal, as shown below: -
