Michael Tovey  -  Rowlstone Church Pottery Empty Oak leaf Coffee set by Michael Tovey, Rowlstone Pottery

Post by Mordeep August 26th 2015, 8:58 am

Hi all

Got a new mystery on my hands. Picked up a sweet little coffee set with a creamer. Did have 6 cups and saucers but managed to break one before the pictures. Now have a 5 1/2 set lol. It's clearly marked but struck out on working out who it's by. Hope you guys can help.

The mark is definitely his - the RCP pottery mark doesn't match - perhaps he changed it.

Hi Johners2000
This is definitely a pot of Michael Tovey of Rowlestone Pottery (b.1930-d.1991) - my dad! He also had a stamp with a single 'R'. It's a nice one - enjoy it.

Hi guys
Just an update to your long conversation. Michael Tovey (1930-1991) (my dad) set up Rowlestone Church Pottery when he retired. He had been an art and ceramics teacher all his life. Most of his pots were practical as well as beautiful. The oak leaf was his design of choice, as well as dragons and birds. His work seems to be better known now than when he was alive. He would be really pleased that his work was appreciated.
Best wishes.

I love the quality of decoration on this plate, the bird was copied from a door sculpture on Rowlstone church

That is nice! A good deal further up the studio pottery quality ladder than the domestic pieces we have seen on here. Where did you get that Dan?
