William Plumptre bowl with his signature blue rope pattern. Heavily influenced by Japanese pottery.

Surprised that William Plumptre hasn't had his own thread before now. I'm lucky enough to have three pieces by him: a charger, a big vase and a huge dish or basin.

I was surprised too. Maybe the magic deleting pixies have been out again.

William Plumptre Empty Green Vase - William Plumptre

Post by Davee October 6th 2021, 3:44 pm

Green vase, with rope technique to the glaze (I'm sure it has some Japanese name). Bottle form slightly flattened nicely turned foot but sadly no marks, any ideas?

It does have the look of the work of Tatsuz┼Ź Shimaoka, who started out working with Shoji Hamada but after Hamada's death became a National Living Treasure himself.

He didn't always use a seal mark i.e. some pieces were unmarked.

I am not saying it is by him and if it was, it would be difficult to actually attribute to him without any provenance.

The painted decoration looks weak in my opinion.

I have checked images of the foot of several Shimaoka pots online and they are glazed within the foot ring as this is. However, the stoneware body of this vase doesn't look right - to me it looks British rather than Japanese clay.

I did consider Shimaoka but drew similar reservations about the clay body and the weakness of the painting also the neck is not typical of his work.

I'm not over familiar with Plumpte's work, but I'll dosimetry research, thank you both for your input.
