Unidentified Studio Pottery - British? Volcanic Glaze?

Post by Fernside on January 23rd 2018, 1:28 pm

This Studio Pottery Vase is around 22cms High, 20cms Width at its widest and 8cms at base. It is over 50+ years old and I think that it is British but there are no visible marks. When researching it on the Internet it looks as though it is Volcanic Glaze (?)

Any information and/or ideas would be welcomed.

Thank you in advance

Not Lava. More of a brown wash than a glaze.
Very nice. Looks like a 70s piece. My first thought was Bernard Rooke or Alan Wallwork, but they usually sign their work. Without a signature it's a matter of checking google images and hoping another one will turn up with a label or mark.

it looks to have been inspired by an Alan Wallwork poppy vase

Inspired indeed. Although more in the thought than the execution!

The glazes suggest a Rooke connection to me. It might have been made by one of his kids (I think he had more than one), who eventually took over making the stuff at the pottery in Suffolk.

Thank you. I will investigate further as both have similar styles.
