this is the responds i got from Dorothy Feibleman herself


Hi Sunny,
Sorry, but looks British, related to someone that might have been to
Harrow or been influenced by various people including Jo and Andrew young
but not in any related to anything I have ever done ever.

Not mine.

Sorry,

Dorothy
ask at Craft Potters Assn, someone named Marta is the manager or was the
manager and she would know who made it.

Best of luck
D.F.

............... you are correct Ed and that is the main problem wth the Potters' Marks book, as a mark is only part of the information required to give a positive identification.

So the "nothing like anything she has ever produced" that I wrote was because I know Dorothy personally and have seen examples or images of her work through her career in the UK and after.

Well that's what make this forum so much better , your personal knowledge is very helpful in cases like this , the studio book , though handy ,has its flaws and should only be used as a guide , so item still not ID'd.

just to add i did a little bit of research on this same mystery bowl .. found a similar mark to the makers mark on my bowl... and contacted the maker which is Tony Foard, then got a reply that isn't by him.. so i totally agree with big ed about this >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>I agree with all that but the mark is identical, also potters have changed their styles dramatically to the point of being unrecognizable

I thought that this was the bowl that you were referring to Sunny but it's not by Kenneth Quick.

The mark is not that for his Tregenna Hill Pottery and the style and stoneware body are also not right.

Excellent i like your Halloween costume john.. very nice.

am not an expert... having said that, but the mark i saw listed as kenneth quick is the same mark on this footed bowl... or could it have been when he visit perhaps another pottery or somewhere else like abroad, like potter's do.. and make something different from their style... just saying.

This is the best example that I can find on the internet and it shows the light coloured stoneware body as well.

He only used the TH mark when he had his own pottery on Tregenna Hill in St. Ives. When he worked at the Leach Pottery and was allowed to mark work he used an interlinking KQ seal.

To be honest I think your seeing what you want to see, the mark looks nothing like Tregenna Hill pottery to me. Surrender

If the style, clay and mark are all different to the norm, then it's very unlikely to be by said potter.

Kenneth Quick started at the Leach Pottery straight from school aged 14 in 1945 and stayed there for 10 years before starting his own pottery up Tregenna Hill. There he generally made tableware in a light stoneware and in earthenware for 5 years. Following this he took a six months teaching post in the States and upon his return to the UK asked Bernard if he could return to the Leach Pottery. This he did and stayed there until 1963 when Bernard helped him to go and study in Japan with Shoji Hamada. Unfortunately, a month before he was due to come home he drowned in a swimming accident. He was 32 years old and so no later mark or change of style.

It looks nothing like the mark elsewhere on this Forum that I said was the clearest example of the Tregenna Hill mark that I have been able to find on the internet.

Proving once again that The 20th Century Forum is the only place on the internet to come for information!!!!!!

Finally had a positive ID for this mark (in the opening post, and the one off pinterest which was wrongly IDed as Kenneth Quick). The info is from a fellow student at Farnham who knew the potter personally -

Made by Tim Holloway, who worked at Wrecclesham Pottery, Farnham with the two Reg Harris's, before going to Farnham College; graduating in 1979. He set up a pottery just outside Farnham, potting first in stoneware and then in earthenware, and decorating pieces in Cardew/Wenford Bridge style. Unfortunately he couldn't make a living in pottery and moved on to other things

Stoneware Charger - Tim Holloway.

It's 13.5 inches in diameter and I probably should know the mark.
