David Wadsworth, Alfreton, Derbyshire Empty Studio lidded jar - David Wadsworth, Alfreton, Derbyshire

Post by Nik Thu Mar 21, 2013 10:59 pm

Lidded jar approx 4" tall.

Marked to side with an intersecting W and inverted triangle, or possibly 'BVW', or then again, it looks like three mountains the other way up.

I say the above because, although there might have been a dash of salting in the kiln, it looks as if it is wood-fired.

Wondering if the mark is a stylised D W but haven't found a likely candidate.

That explains why I didn't get it, as I've never heard of him.

I see that he lives in Alfreton on DD's patch.

The Pottery has a page of Facebook and it seems to be one of the many tourist attractions that Alfreton has to offer!

You can go there and have a taster session of throwing and decorating plus he also runs classes (not tonight though as he is sick). I saw some glazed pieces on the site that have the "window" decoration as on the vase above.

Ha Ha, was there yesterday doing the charity shops, got some good bits, but a bit of a
grim mining town really.
No I've never heard of him either, sorry.

About 8.5 inches wide including handles. Lovely glaze effect. Stamped W or M with a triangle?

David Wadsworth, Alfreton, Derbyshire.

Been in to his studio/tearoom/shop today whilst on a visit to family, lovely place, lovely people, lovely pots.
On a bit of scouting the internet, seems he was a student with Doug Fitch and mentioned in his blog 'The Devonshire Pottery' http://slipware.blogspot.co.uk/2008/11/snuff-stuff.html
Alfreton, ("the grim old mining town") may be full of Charity shops, which is great for affordable treasures.... if DD doesn't get there first!... but it's surviving a superstore invasion, and is quietly sheltering a good potter (just my opinion).

Treated myself to one of his pots

Ha Ha, I go every few weeks or so, I've driven past the tea rooms and wondered what the name meant!
