OK so it is 2 years ago but I have just noticed this - it is an early example of the work of Pamela Nash.

She and her husband, Ernest Collyer, both began making pottery in 1950 in Stanmore, Middlesex.

This mark doesn't appear in any reference books, as far as I am aware but many years ago I saw a vase with "native" inspired decoration and the same signature at an acquaintance's house. He had bought it directly from Pamela, hence the reason I know it to be correct.

Shortly, after I found a similar vase on a dealer's stand attributed to the painter, Paul Nash. The price the dealer was asking was extremely high and he wouldn't believe that it wasn't by the landscape painter, who died in 1946. It stay on his stand for many years.

Pamela Nash and her husband, Ernest Collyer, originally started potting in Stanmore in 1950 and I think moved to Hampstead before finally leaving the London area to live on the coast at Winchelsea in 1976.

Back in August of this year I identified a circular dish with similar decoration to this but incised EC that Ed posted on the forum, as being by Ernest Collyer. I was amused to find the dish above in Greenwich today, which confirms that Ernest Collyer was correct but my suggestion that it was from the 1950s was not, as the 67 on the rectangular dish above means that it was made in 1967.

I think its design is very like Alan Wallwork's and Cornwall. It does have a flat bottom which thanks to this site I know is unusual for his work. I have however found another attributed to him with a "flat" base. There is a number 142 painted in black on the underside.

Thank you for looking and any advice you can give.

Thank you so much Naomi. You are so knowledgeable as always. It is definitely by Pamela Nash. I have now looked at her history and it seems Troika were influenced by her work and not the other way as I thought. many thanks Brid

Alan Wallwork, Bernard Rooke, Pamela Nash (& her husband Ernest Collyer) were making this type of thing before Troika. It's difficult to be sure but I think Kenneth Clark, who ending up making tiles, but back in the late 50's/early 60's was an influential lecturer is Art Schools around London, was the source/inspiration.

I used to come across it quite regularly 20 years or so ago but hadn't come across any for years.

Here are some of Pamela's vases. There is little info available on her work and it is quite different from what she made prior to this brutalist stuff...

I managed to buy a few this year, which makes it look more like a collection. One or two came from eBay.

This one of yours is very similar to a vase I have (third left) - mine reminds me of a camera.

Yes both impressive, I'm jealous. Things look so much better in a group.

I have question - How was the glass done? Did she underglaze the color pigment first then add glass powder that melted? Or do you think they just smashed up a coloured bottle and stuck the bits in - would that not work? I'm assuming the glass is only on one side as the glass side had to be face up? or it would run? Many others did this glass thing in the 60s

I’m not sure what their technique was but I can say I have only ever seen pieces with the glass on one side……I’m presuming glass powder and laid down to finish the process…..
