Cheers. Excellent †Thatís very interesting. In Peter Laytonís biography it says he first studied Ceramics and then went to the US. On returning in 1969 he became interested in the use of glass in ceramics, and set up a small glass blowing studio in Morar - the same studio that had been used by Lotte Glob and other potters.
It doesnít say if he was still initially potting there before turning to glass or went straight to glass. If itís his stamp then I suspect the former was true since it was a Pottery when he initially moved in.
