This is a really stunning colour and I love the matt glaze.

took a bit of doing I tell you. First of all I thought it might have been Usch Spettigue as the glaze used is very similar. But I emailed and it was a no. So.... I turned the sig upside down and then searched all 'S' potters first and last name... eventually I realised Simon, Narbeth and hey presto. Obviously I have too much time on my hands at the mo

There is more information on there about Simon Rich also stating he trained with Alan Caiger-Smith at Aldermaston Pottery in the 60's and with a range of his recent work.

I bought this handled casserole pot about four months ago at a charity shop for £2.50. Actually there was another one for sale (same shape) but I preferred the colour and style of decoration on this one. I made enquiries on studio pottery websites and I thought the initials SR matched Simon Rich but my casserole pot has a new smell about it and I wondered whether it was genuine. It's nice to know Mr Rich remains in production. Has anyone got another casserole or other like articles similar to mine?

Bryony, the daughter of Simon Rich, now runs Narberth Pottery which was originally set up by her father in 1971. Her pottery is very similar to Simon's, but is stamped BR on the underside.

Could this jug be by Stephanie Newton, the mark is the same as the mark in Yates-Owen & Fournier but with dot's before and after the initials.
Your comments would be appreciated.

Thanks NaomiM, I think you are correct.
Must be an early piece , nothing like his current work.

Simon Rich Empty Bulbous vase, copper matte raku - Simon Rich

Post by Essenjay on May 15th 2017, 5:04 pm

I wouldn't normally give this house, or even shed, room but the mark's a bit intriguing  - seems a bit elaborate for something so plain.

Almost like plaster / chalkware, it's white earthenware with a burnished matt exterior (looks to be unglazed) which marks easily and chips even more easily  Rolling Eyes ! Interesting mark on the underside - oval pad with a curly monogram which looks to be SR. The larger vase, pictured, is still intact but the smaller one - which has the clearer mark (also pictured) - became a bit chipped just through holding it.

Probably some foreign tat (not to say that we don't produce plenty of our own tat, of course) but any opinion would be welcome. Unless it's anything special it'll be going into the charity shop box - up to five banana boxes at the moment, the result of buying cheap auction lots for the odd item or two.

Copper matt fumed surface. Sadly the colour never stays fresh for long

Thanks, Naomi, fount of knowledge as usual. Perhaps too good to offload to the charity shop - they'd almost certainly sell it for 20p anyway!
