I am sure many of you are familiar with the gold and lustre work of Mary Rich, who originally trained with Harry & May Davis, followed by a period working with David Leach.

Below is a small vase that I bought recently, followed by information kindly supplied to me by Mary: -

Mary Rich 100_0510

"It was propably made in the early 1970's, shortly after I had moved from Falmouth to set up my workshop here at Cowlands, near Truro.
The pot is white stoneware, salt glazed, once-fired, in an oil fired kiln. The top was dipped in an iron raw glaze, with an inlaid decoration of a manganese slip, with 2 bands of iron oxide on the white body."

Note: I have photographed the vase in order to show Mary's personal seal near the base.

Not typical of her current work, so i'm guessing its an older piece, or am I way off the mark on this one?

I've had a lovely reply from Mary:-

Thanks for your E-mail and the three very helpful images.
Yes, it is one of my pots.  It's hard to be precise, but it is from the 60's or 70's.
It is an unusual shape for me with the waisted shape.  The 'H3' on the bottom refers to a glaze that I was testing.
In those early days I had many clay bodies and several different glazes and did a lot of testing to try to perfect my technique.
I think the clay body in your pot would be a coarse white stoneware.  It is of course salt-glazed.
I don't think I can say any more about it - but I do quite like it still !
I hope it gives you pleasure.
Kind regards,
Mary.

She's sold through Pyramid Gallery, so maybe it's a reminder it's for them.

Would think it's more likely the type of Green used, so a sort of test piece, but probably still sold normally.

Mary sent a lovely reply to my query. Jumping For Joy

She said the little teapot is early 1980s and the PG on the base refers to the copper glaze.
Mary also said that this glaze is not compatible with gold lustres and therefore not many pieces in this colour.

It looks earlier to me with the cane handle - they seem to have first been used in the UK in any quantity during the 1970s.
