She did assist Robin for 3 months at the end of 2006, helping him prepare for his major exhibition at Rufford in Nottinghamshire, but had been potting and exhibiting for several years before then. She does admire him as an artist and one or two pieces that she has made do show his influence. However, I think that she is her own woman and Robin's main influence was to give her the confidence to do her own thing.

She may well do her own thing , but the influence in some of her pots is very obvious , not nearly as good as Robin's, but certainly an attempt has been made .

I think that we can both agree that Robin is a very fine artist and I accept that looking on her web site you might end up with the impression that you have. However, she uses a number of techniques that Robin doesn't use and when I have seen and held Rachel's work I have never felt that they were an attempt at reproducing a Welch pot. I prefer Robin's pots but Rachel hasn't been potting that long and has time to develop further. I believe that she deserves to be noticed by people on here, which I suspect was your intention, so was adding my opinion to try and help that along.

No , that's fair enough , I always have tried to place potters on this forum that I like or am interested in and people can make up their own mind about their work , as she has made a point of mentioning Robins influence ,I thought it worth noting , I wish I could list all the potters that I like ,but that would need another forum , the more established names on potting being around touted around the fairs , usually with a history of their lives from the seller , but when a newish potter is mentioned a blank expression arrives , I welcome new info on new potters , the leaches , etc. of this world can look after themselves.

I have a teabowl by Rachel which I absolutely adore. I think it has the most wonderful surface and shape. Got it from the Lund Gallery, Easingwold, nr York in 2009. 8cm (height).

I like Rachel's work too. I did include her in a couple of two person exhibitions in the past but her pots didn't sell all that well.

I'm sure I saw one with that sort of greenish mouldy look on ebay recently. Don't think it sold. May not have been id-ed.

She doesn't mark her work, as she's too ashamed, so quite likely. Cheeky

Note: If you ever see this Rachel please forgive me - it's a joke, honest!

Old ones from 10 -15 years ago!!!

It's good to see examples of this type of work to compare with the above and, as she didn't mark her work back them, good to have images for identification purposes.

I asked her at Farnham Art In Clay if she had any of these left, as she wasn't making them any more, and luckily she had three left in the studio.

I assume the non-teabowl is a brooch?
