Guy and Joan together are some of my pottery heroes - I think the story is just fantastic. Really enjoyed the books.

I have so little but here is a Joan necklace @2 x 300mm

undocumented Guy Sydenham Stamp

Guy was very keen to document all his stamps so I was very surprised to find this one on a Long Island pot

I love regional folklore and I love Guy Sydenham pottery so this mug was meant to be mine.
Mushrooms anyone?

Well following tonights discussion I whipped out my (reasonable) camera and snapped this GS miniature salt pig (kiln filler) and blue spoon with GS mark and ducks foot. The point I want to mention is that the walls of this item are no thicker than the fair on the opening that he has turned up, say 2mm?  the base is more but the walls of this piece are wafer thin. The slat glaze is the salt glaze, you get what you get - the kiln is the master on the finish. He's even put a hole in the finial on the top so it can be hung on a string.

My point being is that most of what I see by GS is of high quality... [b]he cared about every single little] piece he made [/b and had the hands of a genius.

I have a very similar piece and was also greatly impressed by the potting and detail.
Pictures don't really show how good these items are

Hello Alex

Yes the Napkin rings were made on green island by my father Guy Sydenham,
I can remember him making them, he probably only made one batch so that may be all or most of them.

Best wishes Russel
