Mystery Studio pot

Post by Potwurm on January 25th 2014, 11:07 pm

This pot's baffled me for a few years now. Unfortunately there's no maker's mark but there's a lot of quality about it. The only potential clue to its maker is the handwritten numerals (73) on a sticker to the underside which I guess would suggest it has been exhibited in a gallery at some time... the Continental 7 could possibly point to it coming from France, though that's a bit of a long shot. Anyone out there have any thoughts?

I'm tempted to say its a student piece but I love the third photo and that points to a professional studio potter. I'm wondering if it might be by Terry Davies who's now based in Tuscany .

I know what you mean... at first glance the form seems a little crude, then when you look at it in more detail you can see the skill that's involved in arranging the patchwork of clays - slightly reminiscent of Ewen Henderson's technique though rather more 'ordered' than his work. Thanks for the suggestion of Terry Davies whose work I wasn't familiar with, but which is rather fine.

I think it's by a professional potter, rather than a student.

It's the sort of pot that to me looks like it was a skilled potter doing his/her best to make a crude pot.

Came across some similar folded forms by Geoff Cox. Might be one of his.

Thanks for the suggestion Naomi - I'll drop him a line and see what he says.
