I finally managed to get 'my' Wally Keeler piece for the collection last year. Nice and simple but still classic Keeler. 11.3cm (height)

My three Keeler pots arrived today, I love the deep blue saltglaze used on the teapot but I'm not as fond of the grey used on the bird jug & the Wellington jug so I'll probably sell the 2 jugs to help fund the teapot purchase

I learned a lot from watching this and was in awe of Wally's skill, he makes it look so easy!

I have watched several established potters at work but Wally gets such a high quality finish when connecting handles,spouts etc, I do like the factory finish look to this style of pottery and without turning at the leather hard stage to erase potting errors - quite a rare talent

We have downsized somewhat, as we have moved into a bungalow. This is an early bowl which I now only have the photo of.

No obvious marks. Does anyone know if this is normal for Walter Keeler or could it be by someone else?
Its got light crazing and needs a wash but is otherwise in good shape.

Definitely Walter Keleer. He does not only do the blue salt glaze, and this is his primary second alternative style later in his career. A very nice find!
