Well.. I think a real pedant would point out that by using the Bank of England inflation calculation that £10 in 1966 was actually worth, in real terms now £190.51

Going through old photos. A Licue Rie bowl from an auction in 2017. It has a couple of chips.

A tall wide lipped vase with a pink spiral. She made this type of vase in the late 70's/early 80's when she would have been in her Mid 70's. Atypical of that period.

Hi Philpot, nice to see a good piece of pottery being posted, these spiral mixed clay pieces have great appeal and it has been said that this particular technique inspired Ewen Henderson (although i doubt that he would have admitted it). I think all of these tall flared rim pieces for me are probably her best work .

Interestingly enough, that one is on show in the Wakefield Hepworth Gallery. Where of course they have a large selection of John Ward. Not one of which was on show!
The spiral process is very difficult apparently, and the spiral is different in each of this type of vase.

Like many museums they make a big fuss about gifts and say how extremely grateful they are about the collections that are given and then put them into storage . In the case of the John Ward pots i think they might possibly show a few in the future Happy , they recently bought an Odundo pot for £85,000 but i am not sure if this is on show yet.
