Pebble vase marked RC?

Post by Mordeep on June 10th 2015, 1:06 pm

Hi all

I had posted this as a group but it has been requested I split them out for future reference. So here goes.

Picked up some studio at a market today. Paid £13 the lot (for all 4) and based on the two people trying to grab them out of my hands they could be OK. Studio is not normally my thing but I liked these and this type of pot is certainly easier to find than the ones I normally buy. So any advice on the Pebble vase marked RC would be very welcome.

Looks like that 60's surface effect that was popular then. Hans Coper,Waistel Cooper, Robert Fournier, early Bernard Rooke, some Eileen Lewenstein. If it is from back then, the mists of time are closing fast on trying to identify it.
We've all got sheds, lofts, garages full of unidentified pots.Some day soon, I'm really going to have to summon the courage the dump them. But there is always that feint thought....what if they are worth £££???..... sigh.
Is the brightly coloured one Sandy Brown?

The studio potter market is a pretty small and specialist one of course. The actual number of potters that actually sell well at all, is very limited. Just because is has a studio mark does not mean that people will buy it. Sleepers are few and far between nowadays.

............... who got the idea of doing such things when he rent space at Alan Wallwork's premises on Blackheath Road along with his wife, Sheila, in the early 1960s.
