Lovely Slipware Jug

Post by r-and-f on September 11th 2015, 10:17 am

I had almost given up trying to identify the maker of this lovely 8" slipware jug, one of my favourites.  It has a very clear mark which might be NP or PN, but I've never been able to find out who the potter is.  However I've just spotted a flagon with the same mark (plus another mark) for sale on eBay. The listing suggests a Winchcombe connection.  You can find it if you search on "Unusual Studio Pottery Cider Jar Bottle Flagon Seal Marks Slip Ware Winchcombe". The one on eBay seems to be getting some enthusiastic bids, so I'm hoping that means someone knows the maker.  Can anyone help, please?

I've come across the mark too. The flagon decoration certainly looks like someone apprenticed at Winchcombe

The smooth base is reminiscent of Abuja pottery so DW may be one of those potters.

No different style of stamp, unless it's an earlier version .

This is just a guess but might the DW of the flagon be David Wilson, who worked at Winchcombe from 2000 and now has a pottery with his partner called West End Pottery in Somerset (they have a co.uk website).

His current work is in stoneware but N P could be a pottery he worked at before Winchcombe.

An email to him could confirm or rule this out.

Thank you S-P. Looks like Dave Wilson might be a good lead. I'll try to follow it up.

Not the monogram he used at Winchcombe but still worth checking out.
