Yes. She seems to have started potting with her husband in Mitcham (S.W. London) in 1952, each making their own work, before moving to Newport in Essex in 1962. In the early years of the Craft Potters Association she was a member and has 2 pieces of her work in the V&A Museum Collection. She died in 1978. I do remember having a piece of her work many years ago but she is now a forgotten figure.

That's great. Thanks so much for taking the time to post. My Google search came up with very little - other than the link to the V&A collection and a mention in a mixed auction lot. The additional information is much appreciated!

Small tri corner bowl with painted mark - Stephanie Kalan

Hi

I'm not finding anything on this name outside a University in America. Could well be a student piece though the form is reasonably well executed.

Hi

Think this one read S. Kalan for Stephanie Kalan. I have copied this response from 12/12/2011 by studio-pots. The original post was by goyjus:

'Yes. She seems to have started potting with her husband in Mitcham (S.W. London) in 1952, each making their own work, before moving to Newport in Essex in 1962. In the early years of the Craft Potters Association she was a member and has 2 pieces of her work in the V&A Museum Collection. She died in 1978. I do remember having a piece of her work many years ago but she is now a forgotten figure'.


Hope this helps
