non of the pots pictured on this thread show a really clear mark that was picked up by the camera,is it the same as those red SB marks on his wooden boxes?

They are very nice pieces. But I suppose its just me. Nothing really new, Lisa Hammond or Ruthanne Tudball and numerous others have been trading this ground for some time. Its all superbly done, and a natural progression from the Leach/Cardew school. But..... I'm jaded. Give me more quirky individuality please.

On the contrary Steve is at the top of his game and still coming up with new stuff. Yes, there are the Leach/Malone/Dodd/Rodgers/Hammond favourites popping up in his repertoire too, but he’s rapidly leaving them in the dust pile of has-beens as he experiments with shinos and other forms.

'but he’s rapidly leaving them in the dust pile of has-beens as he experiments with shinos and other forms.'   You do like him a lot don't you Naomi!Laughter
          I think you get me wrong. Its purely a personal reaction.  I actually agree with you to some extent, he does some excellent work indeed. But.....the question at the back of my mind, is just how much more mileage is there in the Anglic interpretation of Korean/Japanese Pottery? In the end, is it now becoming a cul-de-sac?
          When one starts talking about shino glazes, wood firing, etc it is a very specialist field that you have to have a substantial knowledge of the subject to understand!  Amongst many of a younger generation that knowledge is just not there, and probably never will be. Its literally is a dying market.

That assumes collectors are Only collecting shino or wood fired pottery (Steve fires with gas) when these days they have access to an international online market. Compare Booton’s work to Japanese and US potters and he’s making pieces that any collector of teabowls would want; he just needs a few more years to get a wider audience.

Its an interesting discussion Naomi, perhaps worth a thread of its own. Markets, and tastes, and how any craft person at all makes a decent living in today's markets. Steve Booton does lovely work. I wish him luck.
