Flying Saucer pottery! I kid you not....... Sam_2410

Hilary Watters and her partner David Symonds left Paul Cardew's Sunshine Ceramics in about 1980 and formed their own company called Flying Saucer based in London. I found this info on a blog called teapotsteapotsteapots and what a stroke of luck that was because I have never seen anything like it before. It has a few nibbles out of the thin bits on the lid but, and I've said this before, HAI CARAMBA! What were they smoking? The design is called Sirius. Most of the hits that come up on google to do with flying and teapots are to do with Daevid Allen's mighty Gong and their wonderful flights of fancy from the early to mid 70s. Here is a flight of fancy from 1985 (it's dated on the bottom)(the teapot, not Daevid Allen).

Sad but inevitable, the passing of the King of the Pot-Head Pixies but strangely apt to be singing his praises here....
