Help to identfy this artist - Richard Godfrey

Post by Dsandandrew on August 13th 2018, 11:47 am

managed to pick up this trio of modern sculptures and have no idea who made them.

Can anyone help me with this. I have purchased them for resale so if anyone has any ides on value as well then that would be great.

Very nice. Itís by the late Richard Godfrey. A lovely man who turned from functional slipware to sculptural pieces and bright slip glazes late in life.

Sorry we donít give valuations. Check completed listings on eBay and on auction sites for an idea of value, or 50% of the retail prices you see in studio pottery galleries.

Nice one indeed!
There was an Antiques Roadshow from Plymouth a year or two ago which had a couple of pieces by him. They were not cheap. He worked in the beautiful South Hams, and as Naomi said, was a lovely man. Was sadly missed a his relatively early death in his early sixties. His work is not on the open market very often, and your best bet for a price guide is Ebay. Although personally I would keep them as an investment. There is nothing else quite like his later work in the whole of modern studio pottery

Onlineceramics.com stocks his work but their prices are a bit high, imo.
