I have purchased this large lidded pot and to me it looks its from Aldermaston but I dont recognise the design or artist - can anyone help with an artists name or to confirm that it is from the pottery? many thanks

A pretty 11 1/2 in plate, with a surprise underneath! Date cypher for 2002.

I remember meeting Laurence at Pottery festivals 25 to 30 years ago with his work, long after he left Aldermaston, where he trained. I suppose that his work remains very much in the Aldermaston style, hence the link in the title here. However, to me it suggests that his place of training over shadows his actual work, which it does not. For me his brushwork skills are amongst the finest you will find anywhere and superior to anyone else associated with the Aldermaston Pottery.

I would never think of writing Richard Batterham (ex - Leach Pottery) and likewise would not put anything in brackets after Laurence's name. We ought to leave it here so that in the future people don't ask what was that studio-pots nutcase going on about.

OOPS I only added it today after merging two threads.
Mohamed Hamid's thread is similarly titled.

The Aldermaston apprentices will forever be linked to Aldermaston in collectors’ minds, whether they wish to be or not. On a purely practical note, we often have ID requests which say “ looks like Aldermaston”, so having Aldermaston in the title aids online searches

I was just making a point on behalf of Mr. McGowan, a quiet unassuming man, who probably wouldn't have bothered about the thread title. I completely accept why the title is, as it is, and didn't think of changing it. All I wanted to do was show that he was more than someone that learnt his skills at Aldermaston.

At Aldermaston 1976-79.
At Marlborough (Wiltshire) 1979 -
A gallery site's bio says he retired from potting in 2014.

I noticed Phil had dated one pot, so is there a list of date cyphers he used?
