Ian Godfrey was probably one of the most unique potters to come out of the Golden era of British Studio Pottery.
Friendly with both Lucie Rie and Hans Coper he is often regarded as one of that circle of that potters as close to and influenced by  Lucie Rie. She certainly admired his work. While having produced standard pots, he is mainly famed for his idiosyncratic forms slowly carved out of clay with a penknife. An unusual and interesting potter.

yes a good and interesting potter his prices are reasonably affordable at present, his more complex creations always seem to have some damage when they come to auction. He is not on my wish to buy list but i like his work.
