Michael Mosse Llanbrynmair in Wales.

Post by dantheman on October 25th 2012, 3:55 pm


........................

Michael Mosse studied ceramics at Bristol Polytechnic in the late 1960s, and worked at Tregaron pottery, Wales in the early 70s.

In 1976 he joined Alan Caiger-Smith at Aldermaston and stayed there for two years. After leaving Aldermaston he went back to Wales and worked for about eighteen months at Cambrian Stoneware in Llanidloes, whilst building a wood fired kiln in preparation to starting his own pottery.

In 1980 he and his wife Joanna started their own pottery, M & J Mosse in Llanbrynmair, Wales. Their work was mainly slip and sgraffito decorated salt glazed stoneware



Hand thrown and hand painted  on a stone coloured background.  Featuring  a busty lady dancing with a large bull frog.

I've found a few over the years, but they're becoming far more popular now and more difficult to find.

I was lucky to find this mug with this particular cat on it because I think that this is one of the greatest bits of artistic expression I have ever seen - the pride and love and protectiveness that this cat has for the other is an exact reflection of what I feel when I look at my children, and it's all done in wet clay on a mug!!!!
