I think I must have done Ed but I try and wipe all lampbases from my mind Happy.

Back in the 1990s when I began buying studio pottery to sell, I came across loads of his functional work. Probably because one of the best fairs that I used to go to was at Mid Kent College in Chatham around 10 miles from Aylesford where his Quay Pottery had been situated.

Measures 5" high , I like the bold confident way it's been done , there are dents were his hand has held this piece and it fits like a glove , big sweeping gouged out clay gives it a great look imo , I agree about lampbases in general , I must stop buying them with the odd exception

Hi Ed, do we know much about this type of Colin Pearson? Where or when it was made?
Never seen it in any books, they always concentrate on the winged stuff.
I have a (heavy!!) vase, like your lampbase, in the attic somewhere, which I will dig out
and photograph. I was always unsure if it was Pearson, never seeing any other stuff like it,
plus a similarish "circle" mark is used by some other potters, so I just put it awayuntil
something turned up.

This type of pottery was made by Colin in Aylesford in Kent from around 1961 into the 1970s. He did begin making his winged forms there before moving to London in the early 1980s but I believe that there was a time in the 1970s when he was making functional wares and his winged vessels.

He went to Aylesford to work and then run the Aylesford Priory Pottery but the pottery where these were made was separate from this, down in the village of Aylesford.

I saw your pot on a link of yours and it is similar to my Lbase , I bought it with the vase above and was told they both came from the same household / collector , I queried the lamp at first as well , but knew pretty much the vase was good , the Paul Rice book has a similar vase pictured and he dates it circa 70 , but I don't myself , just like them , the winged pieces are obviously getting the main coverage on the net pot pots like these are every bit as good imo.

Yes I promise, when I can find which box it's in up in the attic.

It's in the first pic on my horribly out of date studio section of my website.
