Dartington Pottery, IDHelp potter

Post by vanmann on March 29th 2016, 6:11 pm

I have been trying to identify the potter of this 5 1/2 inches jug and have now found one very similar attributed to Janice  Tchaelenko and one vaguely similar attributed to Marianne de Trey, but can find no other images by either similar enough to confirm.
Any thoughts and suggestions much appreciated, Thanks John

There is no potter's mark Dan, I was hoping someone may recognise the decorative style as I can find no examples of either potter which are similar to this other than the 2 attributed pieces, neither of which are confirmed attributions

It's the pattern commonly attributed to Janice Tchaelenko, but, as I understand it, she was just the designer; the company employed a team of decorators for when the patterns were put into production.

I had no idea she was at Dartington before the 90's?

Tbh, it looks more like something Marianne de Trey would come up with, rather than the far more colourful designs of Tchalenko.

Marianne de Trey wasn't really connected with the Dart Pottery later to be Dartington Pottery.

She had been Chair of the Dartington Pottery Training Workshop that had preceded the pottery but was not involved in the day to day activities. The actual pottery was started by Stephen Course, Peter Cook & Peter Hazell in de Trey's old workshop and it is likely that this pattern came from them or one of them. I will check through some old Ceramic Reviews when I have time.

Tchalenko never actually worked there but produced some designs for them, as she did for Poole.
