Probably Kenneth Clark, who taught at Goldsmiths and then the Central School of Art in London in the late 1950s/early 1960s. He shared a ceramics studio with his wife, Ann Wynn Reeves, and then went on to specialise in the manufacture and design of tiles.

for me he is more interesting than Bernard Rooke but then I am a fan of decorative glaze

Most of the "Bernard Rooke" that you see is later stuff that he had little or nothing to do with - his son (or sons can't remember how many) basically ran the pottery in recent years, producing moulded items. Some of Bernard's 1960s work was really exciting but very rarely seen.

Hello. This is Bob Dawe replying to your interesting question about our style of pottery in the 60s. It was probably because several of us went to Goldsmiths College, where building pottery was far more of an interest to us than throwing. Secondly, under the influence of two splendid tutors: David Garbett and Gordon Baldwin. There was a very strong emphasis on textual decoration that related to the pot and enhanced its form. We enjoyed hand-building because it was a much more direct way of using clay than throwing, where you have a "machine" ie the wheel between you and the clay.

No, never. Apart from the Red Barn barn logo, I never used RD but sometimes BD with the B backwards. This was when Howard Evans, my partner at Red Barn Pottery, and I parted company. From then onwards I worked on my own, most of the time using the Red Barn logo because by that time Howard was using his initials, and not the Red Barn mark.

I'm flattered by your comparison of my work with Rooke's and that you find my pots more interesting. With reference to the glaze, the big advantage of the glazes that were used at Goldsmith's and that I've used ever since can fire to matt but can have the textual similarity to much higher-fired stoneware glazes. However, at the same time, because they don't go to such a high a temperature as stoneware, they still retain colour, rather than coming out with the usual stoneware colours of greys and buffs, which can, to my mind, look a but dull. I should mention, incidentally, that these glazes were originated by Gordon Baldwin, I think (a part-time tutor at Goldsmiths College), whereas Bernard Rooke's glazes were, I think, usually stoneware. So with these glazes you have the advantage of both texture and colour - as earthenware glazes are usually associate with not particularly attractive high gloss (although, of course, I did use one or two of these - in particular, a rich, shiny honey).

Hi Bob and welcome to the forum,
I agree whole heartedly with your preference for hand building,I find the wheel slightly ristricting whereas hand building gives me far more freedom to take full advantage of a 3 dimentional medium.

Question that Bob might help on , I have had a few of the rolled cylinder and pyramid shaped pieces in the past and see them frequently at fairs , so I am guesing they were a mainstay of your studio , did you do many larger pieces ? Ed

Small volcano vase pick up today.
But can anyone tell me about the mark, which has a spot in the house.
Can it be dated from this?

It doesn't have this mark in Yates-Owen. Maybe it was a special mark for the Millennium?
