It Had a £2 sticker on it, so I didn't really need to negotiate this time.

Ray Finch - Page 3 Empty Early Ray Finch Winchcombe Pottery Bowl

Post by potterymad62 on January 23rd 2020, 1:54 pm

Picked up this very scarce early Ray Finch bowl 1935-1946 from the Winchcombe Pottery with RF WP stamped marks, shows the strong influence of Cizhou pottery and of Shoji Hamada. Just wondering if this is a early experimental piece due body clay flaking problems on the base rim, just my thought as some members on here may correct me. Also Michael Cardew used this glaze pattern, I have included a Michael Cardew photo of miniature jardiniere or cachepot with similair style glaze from a sale room auction, this will be in the last photo.

They often had problems with the earthenware at Winchcombe. Ray joined Winchcombe initially wishing to learn to pot and so it would be fair to say that Cardew was a significant influence on Ray. Great to see the original price on the bottom in pencil.

First and foremost Winchcombe was a working country production pottery. They produced in quantity. Michael Cardew was Ray Finch's boss and mentor for a number of years. Hence the primary influence would always be that of Michael Cardew, and combinedwith that British country pottery tradition. I would have thought that any Shoji Hamada and Chizou influence would have been pretty tenuous.
That mark also covers the 2nd world war years of course. Proper glazes and clay may have been very difficult to get.

Good evening all
Would it be possible to help identify my flagon marks.? I've tried researching but to no avail.? I'm sure that it's by Ray Finch but there are two marks that are confusing.
Any help identifying the two marks and possible date. How was the glazing done as it's two toned.? Any information would be gratefully appreciated
Regards

We have a seperate thread devoted to Ray Finch.
https://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t12595-ray-finch?highlight=finch
It is an early Ray Finch mark from the very start of his career. Hence quite in demand. The other mark is the standard Winchcombe mark of that period. I cannot really see a 3rd mark, and indeed there should not really be one.
The glazes are standard slipware of the period.

Thank you for your reply it was just the two marks RF I'd identified it was the standard Winchcombe mark I couldn't identify. So would I be correct that its circa 1937.?

It was a mark used for several years. Circa 1936 onwards.The handle is a fairly simple one, which is another pointer to an early piece.

I'm seeing so much in the macro images, look at the dancing textures. Ive not done anything to this image, sharpen is turned off, no colour correction just custom white balance.
