This is a photo of Ewen taken in the 90's in his 'sculpture garden' with a pot he was donating for action aid, it would be interesting to know where this pot is now. I have not seen this photo published anywhere.Ewen Henderson - Page 4 P3150010

Interesting photo. There are very few of them around.Thanks for publishing it. Born 1934 who would be around 60 there then? He looks quite old for that age!
I presume as a hand builder there is not too much of his work around. Also people that have it, like it a great deal and hold on to it. It certainly has an indefinable mysterious sort of quality about it!

I think he must have been quite ill at that time as he died aged 66. The Erskine Hall and Coe ,Henderson exhibition of 2014 has a number of really excellent examples of his work illustrated.

It's not always realised that Henderson early in his career threw pots as well as hand building, i have illustrated two tea bowls
one from his early period and another from a later period. I have traced six other early thrown tea bowls with provenance but the problem is unless they have a provenance linking them to the artist they cannot be definitely attributed as his work

I wasn't aware of Ewen making bowls like that on the right. How did you find out about them?

It's a little like but, perhaps a more extreme difference, than Patrick Sargent's work from his earlier years that I know more about. In that case Patrick's collectors are only interested in the later work that they know and enjoy and even if something more traditional was offered to them it would be of little interest or value.

hi studio, I first came across his thrown pieces in the exhibition book of 'Things of Beauty Growing' where John Driscoll shows a thrown Henderson bowl , it seems that most come from his time at Camberwell, there have been a couple through auction, one in particular entered by Jim Malone with a Henderson watercolour . The later pieces when an artist reaches his peak will always be more desirable. I am interested in Henderson's whole career so i feel that some examples from his beginnings are desirable.

I do think the "traditional" teabowl that you posted works as a teabowl too and wouldn't mind owning it myself just as a teabowl. Jim Malone was at Camberwell at the same time as Henderson. Also I remember that at the Jim Malone exhibition that I held at the Harlequin Gallery in November 1999, Jim stay overnight at Ewen Henderson's and Ewen came along to the PV on the Sunday afternoon with Jim. Therefore, they remained friends until Ewen's death.

I did have one of those very thin bowls that Henderson made early in his career in the past but bought it to sell and so it went on its way. I do regret not keeping it for a little longer though.

On a visit to Yorkshire one cannot miss the Ceramics at the COCA York Art Gallery. One of the finest selection of  studio ceramics in the country,#. These pieces come from the famed Anthony Shaw collection. They were free standing and not under glass.
