Pantasaph Pottery (Wales)

Post by bradbury7308 on October 31st 2011, 1:12 pm

Hi everyone pleased to meet you all this is my first post thankyou...
First off i never usually buy much studio ware but i fell for the design on the lid although its been in two pieces I would love to know a little about this item is it slipware? There is 3 seal marks to base a capital A what looks like a small p in a circular shape and a rabbit? Maybe somebody would know the mark. Would it be expensive to get the lid repaired ..
The jar is approx 6" tall and 41/4" wide just wondered if anybody knows anything about these jars?
Thanks for reading dan

Pantasaph Pottery (Middle mark)

The A is the potter and the animal is the date code.

I'd guess the potter may be Patrick Adamson (co-founder of the pottery), but this I am not sure about.

I would say that the lid was made then dipped in a whitish slip, then while leather hard, carved through the slip to reveal the red earthenware, hence producing the decoration.

Much like sgraffito and Pāte-sur-pāte decoration.

Yes, I'm sure that's how it was done. Also the screw thread for the lid is a sign of quality. I have only come across this in Winchcombe jars before.

You see i grew up with an antiques dealer in the family so ive handled all sorts but never grasped the pottery field with both hands and didnt take it in im seriously thinking of buying a book on studio marks as its a good area north wales for pottery i have had some interesting buckley slip which is just down the road but sadly sold long ago...
Thanks for the encouragement!

I quite like it, what I'd call "Art Pottery" rather than "Studio Pottery".

I can see the De Morgan influence.

Not an area I know much about.

I think I can now date your Jar to 1975.

Pantasaph Pottery (Wales)

Post by NaomiM on June 22nd 2012, 11:08 pm

Large bowl, slip decorated with bird and foliage. JC monogram on base plus second backstamp.
My parents bought this in the 70s direct from the pottery - I recall it was the potter's favourite piece in the showroom at the time. But they can't remember who or where it came from aside from "Mid Wales or Cornwall".
Id?

Many thanks! Happy

Looked him up and he's now based at Blackhills, nr. Elgin, N. Scotland.

In the early 70s he founded Pantasaph Pottery in Clwyd, Wales (so my parents were right after all) with Patrick Adamson "making slipware which echoed medieval forms." (according to the University of Aberystwyth's ceramic collection & archive website).
