Coxwold Pottery - Peter and Jill Dick

Post by climberg64 on October 13th 2011, 1:56 pm

I visited the Coxwold Pottery recently.

Sadly the pottery is not active at the moment because Peter Dick is ill. I got the impression that this year they fired the kiln for the last time. Hopefully this won't be the case.

There are still some of the pots left for sale as well as some old work going back to the start of the pottery in the 1960s.

Here is a small vase marked with both the Coxwold and Peter Dick's personal marks. Oriental/Leach in style. I think I am right that Peter was at the Leach Pottery for a while and was very active in the Studio Pottery world in it's 1970s heyday.

We wish him all the best.

Another small dish. Lovely subtle (ash and iron?) glaze.

As far as I know Peter didn't work at the Leach Pottery - he was a Cardew man.

I think he dropped out of University in 1959 and embarked on travelling around the world for a couple of years during which time he became interested in pottery, after meeting Michael Cardew in Abuja, Nigeria. He worked with Cardew there for about a year (1961/2) before going to Winchcombe for two and a half years, as an apprentice to Ray Finch.

It was during his time at Winchcombe that he met his wife and they moved to Coxwold in 1965 to start their pottery.

It is probably worth adding that this is an early piece from Peter and Jill Dick's Coxwold Pottery in Yorkshire - the mark dates from 1965 to 1968.

Peter worked at Abuja in Nigeria with Michael Cardew in the early 1960s and then came to the UK to work at the Winchcombe Pottery where he met Jill.
