One of the very finest of British hand builders. At the  Camberwell course  in the  late 60's,he has had a studio at Newport,South Wales since 1979. His quiet pots have a great beauty,that matures the more you look at them. This vase is 22 cms high,17 cms in diameter.

I do agree that John Ward's pots have a great beauty. When I first became aware of his pots it was through photos and the reality is that they can never do his work justice. You really need to hold them.

If there is any justice in this world, and the explosion of John Ward's prices in the past few years is a result. Never particularly trumpeted in the larger world,(the V&A only has two of his pieces, with similar paucity in other Museums) and quietly ploughing his handbuilt perfection in the remoteness of Newport Wales. While exhibiting consistently IN small galleries like the Stour Gallery, Amalgam Barnes, and Peter Dingley amongst others. He built a reputation entirely on the quality of his work. Which is unique. Of all the 'pupils' of Coper and Rie that now have taken the limelight, the quality of John Ward's work stands above everyone else.

Before I knew anything about studio pottery we lived a few doors apart in Charlton S. E. London. I was speaking to Deirdre Burnett recently and she told me that he had stopped potting but was enjoying his retirement. They used to show together at the Peter Dingley Gallery.
