Alan Ward, Andrew Hague and Bryan Newman, maybe. Although I can't see them being Brand names like Leach & St Ives.

Came across Matthew Blakely today. Now he is definitely someone to watch.

I doubt many will surpass the Leach & St Ives Name , they are firmly established now , I agree Bryan Newman should be more High profile .

Peter Arnold, Alderney Pottery, was a fine potter, with beautiful glazes, who deserves more recognition.

I like some of Vera Tollow's work, but it's very variable and some of it you couldn't give away.

Some of Vera Tollow's stoneware work is very good indeed. Can't say the same for her earthenware tho.

David Lloyd Jones.One of the best of the 'Leach' potters who had no real connection with Bernard Leach.Largely self taught as well.

The more pots I see of Scottish Potter Bill McNamara the more I think this man deserves a lot more recognition , his work is among the best I have ever seen , his work is now in the kelvingrove gallery in glasgow as well as other museums throughout Scotland.

Have you loaned them your collection Ed?
Exhibitions are a great way to get him more recognition.

Iv'e enquired Naomi , they are currently busy with expanding or attaching another part to the building especially to house the studio ceramics in Paisley so I'm not sure what's happening , she ( curator) has kept pics of his work I sent , I hope to see her next week in Scotland as I'm up there selling property , the interest on Pinterest has been good with others coming forward with his work , Including one guy who has some pots , tools and seal mark soapstone , order papers and self portrait painting as well and other potters who worked with and were influenced by him , a year ago there was zilch on the net , but i'm working on it as best I can .

Most Excellent

Of course, you are going to make his work prohibitively expensive. Happy

Not my aim really , if it is it is , I found out it was expensive when it came out at first , the price the museum paid range from 65- 90 but that was in the 1980's , I belive a catalogue slab vase in 84 was 150 , but you only get what people think they are worth just like anything else , although some of the asking price for potters that are still producing today seem a tad high to me , not all but some I won't mention who , I always wonder at prices for things and think why? but then it's the collectors innit , troika moulded, abundant , for example I don't get it Shrugs
