Mick Casson pottery book

Post by big ed on October 13th 2014, 11:45 am

I bought a 1 book the other day at shepton , Called pottery In britain today by Mike Casson date 1967 , the black & white pics of some well known potter were outstanding , Honestly the work by Bernard Rooke , Alan Wallwork and Bryan Newman was amazing , Gordon Baldwins early pieces were fantastic , I doubt many collectors today would recognise some of the brilliant work these guys did in the past , Ray Marshall , Colin Kellam , you wouldn't know they were doing great stuff like that as all we see is the ebay offerings that bear no resemblance at all to the early work .

It is my favorite book on British studio pottery and the pots are as good as you say. At one time it fetched considerable money but these days people generally don't want books so prices have fallen but for 1 it must be the bargain of the year.

Hope this doesn't get deleted, but for a list of that, and similar books, this is a great site:

http://www.mancha.demon.co.uk/books.html

I like the sound of "Pioneer Studio Pottery - The Milner-White Collection. Author: Sarah Riddick. Eric Milner-White's collection of studio pottery was assembled between 1925 and 1963.The collection includes the work of 30 potters including Shoji Hamada, Bernard Leach, William Staite Murray, Norah Braden, Katherine Pleydell-Bouverie and Michael Cardew. 136 pages 203 illustrations in colour and black & white.@

I note on the site you mentioned that Ed's book is POA!

The Milner-White collection has earlier stoneware pots that he collected between 1925 and 1962 and not only British/Japanese. Also Emile Decoeur, Erik Hjorth, Wilhelm Kage, Nathalie Krebs, Emile Lenoble, Axel Salto and the like.
