John Rivers - Riddings Pottery, Derbyshire.

Mostly self taught he has also gained experience and advice in the early years from David Frith and Derek Emms. (all info taken from the website)

I visited Riddings Pottery around 20 years ago, in my youth, and was greeted by John ( I recognise him from his website pictures). I was taken to a gallery, up basically... a ladder! above his pottery workshop. I bought 3 things, a huge bowl, a Madge Spencer vase (which I still have) and a lidded pot. We still use the pot but after 20+ years of kitchen life is looking a bit worse for wear.
The large bowl was pushed off a window sill by my cat and smashed aaargh!
I haven't seen much of his work on searching, so I thought this post might help ID's in the future if they pop up.

Now John has a brand new website http://www.riddingspottery.co.uk/

I've made a few awful pots in my time and marked them in a similar way. I don't think any escaped but be warned.

Well if one did, the day may come when you have to ID your own pot!.....probably his mark has changed over the years, lets hope! Laughter
