It doesn't look anything like the work that he is associated with but the description of his early work and the mark do fit. A good spot and if you continue like this you won't need our help very soon. Wah

He was at Oxford Ceramics Fair with completely different material to his lustre raku. A shame. I prefer his raku.

agreed. BSPM book says ejw was his early mark, before W, so looks like he's gone back to making his early stuff.

Yes the lidded pot must be early as I bought it at least 10 years ago.

I contacted John about a Raku vase I have and asked about the mug at the same time. He was very kind to respond:

" it’s an early piece, made at Sudbury Hall when I lived there and I think it will date to around 1976-78.
It is reduction fired in a gas kiln and looks like Potclays St.Thomas’ Oxidation body with a celadon glaze - David Leach’s “Ying-Ching“ recipe if I remember correctly.

Just thought I'd share on the forum.

The ejw mark was used 1975-80, the W mark from 1980 onwards. I do like his lustre work.

Pair of marks on a John Wheeldon stoneware salt pig made in Matlock in the 80s. He said the second mark is a Wheatsheaf because he was living in a property of the same name at the time.
