I don't know a great deal about this potter other than he trained at Farnham at the same time as Patrick Sargent and there they became friends.

The main reason for starting the thread is that his mark could well be confused with that of Sheila Fournier, so here is an image of the mug by him that I own plus the mark.

After doing a search I assume that he might well be the artist and writer that now lives in the South of France.

Another version of his mark -




Doug Fitch says he was at Bishopsteinton in Devon and used to work with him at the art college in Exeter. But he no longer pots. His website lists him as an artist

Interesting that his mark seemed to change more often than his work. I saw the website too.

My mug has become one of my favourites - I always have a Powdermill Nic Collins one first thing and the one above for the rest of the day......................... unless I have tea and then it's a Derek Emms porcelain one.

It is enlightening to juxtapose "Fine Art" to "Modern Art"
