A small stoneware pot dated 1967.
Not the most exciting piece of his diverse work, but it's all I have!

....exciting enough and a nice thing to own and hold, the ash in the glaze was possibly from a plant in his garden, makes it all very real.

I had the chance to buy from him just a few years ago when he had a pop-up shop in Chichester. Gorgeous pottery & prints - too pricy for me. I wish I had now.

Nice but not cheap. But a lot cheaper than the large Mellon bowl the dealer also had, but I think hubby would have blown a gasket if I'd come home with that Big Laughter

Lol, probably.
Dealer thought he'd over charged so I asked if he'd throw in a Bizen guinomi for free.... turns out the guinomi is worth four times as much Shock

A Eric Mellon vase at auction a few years ago. This is the type of work he is famous for, rather than the earlier ash glazed work. This style of work is almost unique, and highly prized by collectors, resulting in very expensive prices. Still, it is always nice to look!   This mark/signature is on nearly all his later work.

I don't think he was a Bums man as such. He just did a lot of nudes... Laughter
