Have just come across this thread and thought this jug may be of interest. I did get confirmation from Roger Cockram that he had made this, probably he thought, in the 1980s, John

Met him at Art In Clay, Farnham. Lovely chap, but I didn't like his current stuff. The leaping fish bowls were far, far better.

I asked him if I could take photos and he was very touched I'd bothered. He said most people just snap away regardless, and he gets a bit irritated by their rudeness.

He said he stares into rock-pools for inspiration. Last year was a bit too seaweedy for my taste. This year he's gone for a more watery effect so I treated myself to one of his new bowls.

A nice Fish pot I've just picked up.
Looks to be the same shape as his tea pots, but without spout and handle.
Stands aprox 12 inches tall with Fish finial lid and 8 inches without lid.
Fully signed and stamped Roger Cockram

A couple more pic's of it









I think this is a really clever pot, the way the fish swim up one side, over the top and down the other.

I love it!

I think his fish pots were some of the best things he's ever done.
