Bought for me at a local village fete from a stall selling 'crafty' things - some of them rather good but expensive. I happened to comment that this was intriguing (I didn't like it much) & lo & behold it was mine .....! Certainly a strange piece. Is it evening class potting or something more? I can find no mark.







It looks like some strange bird - an eagle? With all the detail - beak, feet, tail, ears (on a bird?!), eyes etc. someone has put a lot of effort into this.

I don't think it's an evening class piece.

I've seen pots by (I think) this maker attributed as Jennie Hale, but I don't believe I've seen one marked, so I can't be sure. Worth an email in my opinion.

It's Salt Glazed, so would be an earlier piece if it is.

Jennie Hale is interesting as she works not far from where it was bought. And a quick google throws up a number of pieces with similarities. I didn't know her work. I'll see if I can email her later.

Thanks.

Now confirmed by Jennie Hale as one of hers. It was a salt glaze pot made very soon after she left art college.

Is Potty a pottery genius?

I've also discovered she lives closer to me than I thought & exhibits at a gallery that's closer still. Her more recent work is quite different.

Her own web-site link thingy.
