I asked at the Anthony Shaw collection about dates for this and another piece this is the reply -
Dear Eddie,

Thank you for your images. The Ring Landscape is c.1974 and the teapot a little later.
Try and find, if you do not already have it, Tony Birks book 'The Art of the Modern Potter' 1976.
You will find similar examples of Godfrey pieces. It is out of print but you maybe able to find it on Amazon.
I think the landscape is a particularly fine piece. I like your obvious interest in the raw quality of clay as a medium.
Good luck with your collecting.
Regards,
Anthony

Ok, so these two are in the V&A. The one with all the little drawers can only be for a person with a dead pet wasp collection? Yes?

What annoys me a bit about these large collections is that there are obvious omissions. There is not a single piece of Guy's own work in the V&A although his Poole designs are represented and one piece of Wallwork. Things change..... Hamada, Rie, Leach and Hammond were yesteryear. Next.

Don't know. This is one of his with birds, and they do look a bit like the biggest one at the end.

I think it is, and another one with birds very similar went about a month ago with 5 birds inside a vessel.
