Studio bowl, WVC mark - Wally Cole, Rye Pottery

Post by Mordeep on October 15th 2015, 10:40 am

Hi all

Here we have a very nicely potted studio bowl with a signature that I take to be WVC or WWC? Anyone seen this work before?

Thanks

I suppose it's important to say that seeing a mark like this your first thought should probably be "hobby potter" but that isn't always the case.

Wally did it this way. I met him a few times just before his death and he was a lovely man.

I'm getting pretty good at spotting hobby potters with the amount of stuff I have been filtering through the last few months. Not sure how I heard about it but the weight is often a give away even before looking for a mark. Hobby potters always seem to make things weigh a ton for their size. I have also started recognising the skill it takes to make some of the flourishes you see on studio. That's why I thought this bowl was good, it feels great in the hand. I can't think of a better compliment to a potter than to praise the quality of what they made. Seems like Wally left a pretty big legacy in that regard.
