Can anyone help with this one please.
I picked this little dish up a couple of weeks ago and researched the mark to Penzance Pottery but that's all I knew.
I've just seen one similar on an auction site naming Anthony Richards as the potter, only that one is slip ware. This one has a wavy line and stars drawn into the glaze (sgraffito?).
Does anyone know if this is by him or did he not work alone?

Seems he didn't just do slipware, and there's no mention of him selling the pottery to someone else before moving to Arch Pottery

I don't have many sculptural or textured pieces but this is my most beloved, valued pot, despite being worth probably next to nothing for anybody else. It already means everything to me for a few reasons, even though its a very new purchase:

1. It was made by Anthony Richards or John Buchanan at Arch Pottery, Hicks Court in St Ives. My wife and I honeymooned at Hicks Court but didn't know until much later it was previously Arch Pottery. Knowing that, I had to buy something special created there. Now it's 'Our Pot'.
2. I've never seen anything else like this produced by Arch. Its so untypical in style to everything else I've seen made there.
3. It's brutalist, textured looks and feel bring me close to that rugged north Cornwall coast every time I look at it.Anthony Richards, Penzance & Penderleath potteries, PZP & PP St Ives marks Arch311

OK, So I contacted John Bedding about the above pot - as it just seemed so obscure for Arch. He sent me a nice and intriguing reply, which has now left me stumped for ideas:

"As for the pot that is a real mystery. It looks like stoneware with carbon markings in the glaze, which means it would have to have been fired in a wood, gas, or oil kiln. they only had electric kilns and only fired earthenware. So who and where it was made I have no idea, it has all the right markings; all I can say is that it was probably made at the Arch, and fired maybe at the Leach, but definitely not by me. You're right it is a special pot.

Cheers

John"
