Iain Denniss, Egremont, Cumbria

Post by r-and-f on August 9th 2017, 10:59 pm

Iain Denniss, Egremont, Cumbria. A new name to me. Not in the book. No existing thread on this forum. Very little information online. But a very competently-made and decorated 10-inch stoneware plate, with a clear ID seal.

The address label means I don't have to show him in the "ID my pottery" section.  In fact, he could say: "ID - my pottery!"

A couple more. Quite similar glazes and stoneware or porcelain clay to that used by the Friths. I wonder if he was an ex-apprentice? There was a similar fish on a cheese dome a while back. I'll see if I can find it.

I found an obituary in his old school magazine. He died in 2006 at the age of 58; his main career was as a research scientist at Sellafield, but, it says, "Iain was also very well known locally as a potter, his speciality being highly prized birth and
wedding bowls and plates."
