John Green - Cheesemans Pottery

Post by lindylou08 on Sat Apr 23, 2016 5:40 pm

This potter is fairly local to me but I've never come across his work before.

Heavy / deep, stoneware with embossed? regular pattern to outside and lovely glaze inside  - blue with a broad sweep of ? tenmoku which looks iridescent right in the bottom.  Somehow the outside doesn't really seem to 'go' with the inside decoration.  23cm diameter

Would be grateful for any other information on the potter.   Thanks

I knew John for a few years, but sadly he died some years back. He was a fantastic potter who was capable of throwing very large items (he was strong!) and lived with his partner at Brick Kilns Common near Wisborough Green. I also have a handful of his items which I cherish. He was a lovely person and shared his skill with others as he worked as an Adult Education tutor.

Great to find out something about him and to learn that he potted in the area of the county that I love very much as my family for several generations came from the area ie Enernoe, Kirdford etc
Thanks
