I met a potter today who used to paint the sides of fairground rides for a living,he has now traded his airbrush for a palate knife and makes pottery as a sideline....I just found his business card,he's a Romany artist Daniel De Aston.

EDIT
after one week of owning the vase,not a day has gone by without at least half an hour spent staring in awe of it's beauty




I love the crystalline glazes used here,the decorator can fish out a crystal from the liquid glaze and place it on the pot where he wants an explosion (literally) of colour.

mine has a very large signature on the back Pip,I have been looking on the net this morning & can find nothing about J H Matthews...the signature was done with a marker pen so it may be a previous owner rather than the artist but I doubt it

after a little research I am 75% sure this is also Alvingham pottery

after 3 years of owning this lovely pot I have tracked down the potter and of course he is in Cornwall.
Rob Fierek created it in 1977 whilst potting in Kegham,he and his wife now have a small studio pottery in Gunnislake.
