Potential early Derek Clarkson - Thoughts or alternatives?

Post by gonkquin on September 1st 2018, 12:10 pm

So I have come across this beautiful large vase, and the only id I can come across is a similar base and paint mark for "Rossendale Pottery - Derek Clarkson"!

Not entirely convinced - but the same type clay, mark and base - so I wondered if you had any other thoughts - as I appreciate most are stamped opposed initialled.

Greatly appreciated as ever.

This is an example I have of Clarkson’s Rossendale Pottery; doesn’t strike me as quite the same style.

No. Derek Clarkson's work is stoneware in a David Leach sort of style, or absolutely beautiful crystalline work. This is just not his style

The suggestion is it’s his early Rossendale Pottery, which was red earthenware before he switched to stoneware. I think the jury’s still out as there’s very little of such work around, or at least identified as being by Clarkson

If it were Rossendale   the only real interest would be completist or historical.  A curiosity.

As is 99% of the rest of the stuff posted here. Sort of why this website is here, isnt it.

Which might well a critique of the site. We see a good deal of the ordinary and downright dull, and not enough of the best and brightest. It might well be an interesting subject for another thread.

Thank you both for your points... either way - whilst it might not be his typical more modern work - it has a great shape and style about it - and impressive with its size. I thought i would ask. Thank you again.
