Robert's studio was in York at that time so I would be surprised if it's not one of his

the  colour looks spot on, the technique matches that used on my pieces so I would say yes it is a Robert Brumby cross  Excellent

I spoke to Robert this evening and finally got confirmation that all my pieces were made by him Most Excellent He also told me of the studio he had in The Shambles, York (1963 - 1975)

Robert was commissioned to create many architectural pieces beginning in 1967,I have shown pictures of Liverpool and Manchester churches but can now add a listed church in Pontefract and St Michaels in Wolverhampton.

I believe there is also work existing in Manchester schools and possibly a pub in Liverpool! so plenty of leads for me to research

I have two plaques presumably from the same sale of the venerable bede , and edwin being crowned king of northumberland.i got them from a collector called lee,who had researched them and thought they were made for the bowes museum at barnard castle,but never used,so were sold off a lot later.

we would love to see them, I think they belong in a museum as they are too large to display in a private home

I was lucky enough to find this one today. Apparently commissioned for the Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle, but never used. I think it's beautiful.

I think it's fantastic. Bought it before I'd made the link with the Madonna and Child at Liverpool Cathedral.

Fantastic piece. Not a potter I've come across before; hoping one will turn up at some point :)

I need to know more about him. Perhaps more of a sculptor than a potter.

He did phone me a few years ago and said he was getting back into ceramic art but I haven't seen any new pieces on the market
