Robert Fournier?

Strange there's no Fournier thread.
6 in high, the mark looks right, but I don't
have much to go on otherwise.

There is a fatter RF mark and a slimmer SF (R reversed) mark in Yates-Owen. This looks like the slimmer mark.
However, the examples I've seen have been impressed on a knob of clay.

Not seen anything from the Fourniers with this glaze or stoneware body.

If is one of theirs it will be by Sheila rather than Robert and from the early 1960s. I don't know her work from that period but knowing what she made in the 1970s I would be surprised if it was her work.

Thanks SP that's what I needed to know.
The mark is very small, and on the rim, so difficult to photograph, but matches
exactly with the RF in the book.

My mistake, it is like the Robert Fournier mark in the book from the early 1960s when they rented space from Alan Wallwork.

I know that when the Fourniers went there Alan was quite rude about Robert's work but what I said above still holds true. Especially as Robert very soon started making in the "house style" of Alan and his other tenant, Bernard Rooke.

I don't think Alan meant to be rude about Robert's pots but they were talking about Alan's time at Goldsmith's College and Alan heaped great praise upon Kenneth Clark, who was Head of Pottery, during Alan's time there. It was just that Alan added that the person who had been there before Clark had been a crap potter to which Robert replied, "That was me".
