Alan Wallwork?

Post by AlanH on January 23rd 2013, 4:03 pm

Sorry to hog the board folks, but with it being cold & damp (in normally Sunny Southsea) I've started to fight my way into the loft and wade through several hundred newspaper wrapped pieces!
I have no provenance on this, but it looks very Wallwork - my query is because the mark on the base is very shallow?
Thanks,
Alan.

Without a mark the stoneware body, shape and the glazes look right for Alan. The mark does look faint and it might have been scratched on after firing (but without seeing "in the flesh" it isn't really possible to say).

Looks a lot more like Derek Davis.
A red Wallwork glaze? One never says never. But never seen one EVER!

I had a number of vases of similar shape, the same stoneware body and the pink/red glaze that I got from Alan when he was clearing out his Whitty Down Farm studio before moving to France.

From what Alan told me, they were primarily test pieces for trying out different glazes but the ones that I took from him were marked. However, I do think that there were unmarked pieces that I didn't buy from him and so he would have then sold on the stalls that he had on Greenwich Market.
