Adrian Abberley (London & at Briglin)

Stoneware drainpipe 18 in high. Wonder if his pots were marketed by Briglin? Plants, Whaley Bridge (NW Derbyshire), was
presumably a retailer. If the 14.50 sticker is the price from the 70s, not a cheap pot!

Adrian Abberley is mentioned in the Briglin book (p.53) as he was included in the 21st birthday party exhibition in 1969. Not seen that exact label before. It is similar to the brown 'Briglin - HAND MADE - IN ENGLAND' (same size shape but brown ground white letters) which I think dates from mid sixties - Alan Wallwork said when Briglin sold his tiles they stuck Briglin stickers on everything and that was this period. So I assume Adrian Abberley sold through Briglin also at that time?

Decimalization was 1971, so if it was sold earlier than that date (which is my guess) then it would have been the shop next door - 23 Crawford Street where Brigitte sold the plants. Or perhaps it was sold in say 1972 and that was the price on the bottom? A hefty 14.50? Either way that a little Briglin label has probably survived for about 50 years.

Interesting thing, thanks very much for posting it.

This is apparently a incense stick holder. Same mark as DD's above - The black at the top is glaze

Never spotted this one before 22, a cracking piece, so not a vase then?
Looks beautifully thrown,

TBH I was a bit disappointed when it arrived. The glaze is attractive, it's just the form is a little undelicate, perhaps I'm more used to earthenware and porcelain than lumpy stoneware. Yes it's a bud vase, I use it for incense in the fireplace.

The only other piece I have ever seen.
Maybe an underrated potter.

Well you need to produce a certain volume to be appreciated. It's fine for a vineyard to produce great wine but if they only make 20 bottles a year then they won't get popular appeal. There is just nothing on the market. Nothing. Not even one piece a year.

Then we have some rare jewels 22!

Maybe he did his volume while at Briglin itself.
