Vase with gold highlights, signed TL
Laverick's mark is usually handwritten TL and date, or a stamped TL where the T is outside the L. This one has the T inside the L so I asked him at Farnham Art in Clay if it was one of his and he said yes, it was the sort of vase he was making in the early 1990s when he switched from crystaline glazes to higher temperature layered glazes with metallic highlights. Coincidentally he was selling them at Farnham Maltings ceramics fairs back then, just like Art in Clay, and he used to sell out on the first day.

It does to me too, but I'm wondering if he licenced a few designs for sale in somewhere like Habitat. But maybe I dreamt it.

He appears to have worked in the Potteries before opening his own studio pottery workshop, so he does have a factory connection. However, if I had to guess I would go for this not being British.

Those are both early pieces. He stopped using the ASL mark in 1992. Did some really lovely lustre work for a fair time,and then took a different direction in bisque firing several years ago.

I spoke to him for a long time at the last Earth and Fire Fair - and in early days think he said he worked at wedgewood before scrimping enough to get a small place then produced a bit of domestic syled pieces to eventually support his ambitious designs - He is a lovely lovely chap and like so many had to get established the hard way - a top bloke!

He lives just down the road in Leek I think.
Oh Yes. Ashbourne antiques shops. Been there, done that. Some one there knows their studio. There was a nice Peter Lane geometric piece there a few years ago when we were around that way. But the price wanted was about treble what it was worth on the secondary market!

Personally I like his lustre period which he did roughly from the moid 90's for 10 years or so.
