Ian Gregory

Post by skipposal on March 17th 2013, 6:39 pm

My studio pottery collection is mostly vessel-based but I made an exception for Ian Gregory's sculptures. He was born in 1942 and works near Dorchester. My first piece is a salt-glazed stoneware sculpture of a copse of trees, cut and shaped from a wheelthrown form. I believe this is an early piece, maybe late 1970s when BSPM says he began salt-glazing? 11.9cm (height).




My second piece is one of his classic chest of drawers models in salt-glazed stoneware, bought from the Oxford Ceramics Gallery. Dates to 1960s according to them but I thought he made them in the 1970s. The V&A have one in their collection. I understand he has gone back to making them recently. Unmarked. 13.9cm (height).



Further info gratefully received as usual Happy

In a former life Ian or Iain was an actor and a "pop star". He recorded for one of the legendary record producers of the 1960s, Joe Meek.

A link to one of his ditties.

Well known for his sculptural work.Mostly in Salt glaze nowadays. But he also did a fair amount of Raku. These again are from the mid 90's.And a little scary!

I've met the dog too. It didn't look quite the same in real life.

Trying to get confirmation of the date of these two from Ian. They must represent a lot of time. The more I sit and look at them the more I'm amazed at the detail and the effort that went into them. The back of the 'small' one has fired beautifully.

The two Pubs ....UPDATED.....

Well so I buy these two pieces from eBay. I was very impressed with them and they are huge, the large one is 600mm high. I had bought a nice dog from Ian six months previously so he must have recognised my name when I emailed him asking if these two were his and if he could please supply so info on when they were made? There were (and still are) thick with dust and seem to date from the 70s or 80s? I did not think it was a big ask considering I had bought from him recently.

He replied to my first email as he was unable to open the zip file. So I resent the email, then I resent another polite email......

.....no reply, three emails Shrugs

I thought this story was worth posting as it would have been good to record his thoughts on these pieces.
