Earthenware Plate painted cockerel and distinctive border -David Eeles

Post by Catshome on October 19th 2012, 5:23 pm

Does anyone recognise the design on the border?  I'm sure I have another piece with it somewhere, so this would kill two unknowns at once (when the other one turns up again of course)

Could it be by Richard Godfrey? Found one of his jugs on ebay (completed listing) listed as RICHARD GODFREY STUDIO POTTERY SLIPWARE JUG - DEVON, with a paper label.

Here's my Eeles pot, a fabulous lustre vase by Benjamin (b1959). Not sure what the ink marks on the base mean. Bought from Oxford Ceramics Gallery. 28.4cm (height)

Two David Eeles dishes

Post by lindylou08 on September 5th 2013, 6:04 pm

Picked these up today at a boot sale. One has a label but the marks on both appear to be partly obliterated by glaze. Hope they are right - I love them.
My photos don't do them justice

David stopped making slipware in 1965 so could be up to the mid 1960s or earlier (from 1955).

They might be pieces he made at The Shepherds Well Pottery, Hampstead London, before moving to Dorset in 1961

Made between 1955 - 62 apparently




I spoke to his son Simon in the summer. David had quite a serious accident earlier last year  and I'm not sure if he is still throwing or only decorating

Seen a few more of his slipware birds and now pretty sure it's by David Eeles. The back is unusual, though. I suspect he's used a standard plate, which may be why it's unmarked.

Eeles Pottery Dorset

Post by lindylou08 on April 21st 2014, 6:08 pm

Hi
This tea bowl has scraffito decoration on a stoneware body. The mark looks like SB, SE or GS . I would be grateful for any thoughts you may have on the potter.

 




Thanks

I'm not an expert on the Eeles family but think it could be by Simon.
