None of them are signed but they are numbered. Although, according to Sue, the numbers are not the pottery's.

This from Sue Schwartz:
...I do remember that chuck particularly liked the flat vase
They were not wood fired but done in post firing charcoal. he got some great results!

Confirmed by Sue Schwartz that they are all by her husband, Chuck Schwartz, of Gnarly Dudes fame, Dartmoor.

All the pots in the photos are Chucks...

Some were fired in the pottery co-op's anagama kiln.

It was serendipity. Took the mother in law to Hungerford Arcade and she only got to one end before she ran out of steam and we had to go home. So I'm hurrying out when I catch sight of these in the corner and take some quick snaps on the iPhone. Asked a couple of friends on Facebook  but they couldn't ID them but loved them so I knew they had to be something good. I thought they might have been a mix of Jon Fellows, Nic Collins and Sabine Nemet because they're one of the few groups doing this sort of anagama firing, and there were some very similar pots on their website. Had a sleepless night and dashed back the next morning. Bought three, then noticed a dog basket and half chewed bone nearby and went looking for someone with a dog in the hopes they were the dealer and would know where they came from and do me a deal on the rest. As luck would have it she was still in the arcade. She'd bought them as a job lot at auction. Knew nothing about studio pottery and kept calling them raku, and thought I'd paid far too much for the first three so let me have the rest at a bargain price. Meanwhile Sue Schwartz had seen my photos on Facebook and IDed them as being by her husband. There's surprisingly little of Chuck's work online which was why I hadn't been able to ID it off the Gnarly Dudes exhibition website.
But if the mother in law hadn't made me leave early I'd probably have bought just one or two (under her disapproving gaze), and not met the dealer and would probably have returned long after the rest had been sold and then been kicking myself for not buying them when I had the chance Big Laughter

Here's a photograph of Chuck with Nic Collins at Nic's 1999 Harlequin Gallery exhibition. Chuck was only a part-time potter and, although American by birth, he lived in Putney at this time and was a Jungian psychoanalyst, I believe, in Harley Street.

Here are a couple of images of a teabowl by Chuck that I sold last year. This had originally be bought from a small solo exhibition of Chuck's work in London in the 1990s and it had an incised mark on the base but, unfortunately, I did not photograph it.

Besides the teabowl looking very Japanese the mark was too - basically an incised tick or similar.

You are a very brave lady buying blind from an antiques arcade Naomi. Buying blind was a thing we used to do in our first few years of searching for studio pottery at boot fairs. It was not until we faced house move that we realised its not something we would do again. What do you keep in the eternal hope that you will find out, and what do you winnow? After several busy weeks of giving things away to charity shops. we vowed buying blind was not a good thing to do in the future. That mountain of pottery wrapped up in the loft, garage, spare room, cellar, summer house....has eventually to be cleared some time!Laughter Laughter Laughter
Nice pieces tho!

You seem obsessed Philpot by the quantity of what I collect, where as I just see individual pieces, so I’m afraid I have no idea how to answer such comments; it’s simply not an issue for me; you know, they go somewhere and every so often I spot them again. Sometimes there’s stuff in front or behind or under or ontop Um... Shrugs
