Alan Wallwork.
Well it could have been half a dozen. But Alan Wallwork is entirely unique. A Wallwork pot with the personal W mark is like no other. Instantly recognisable. It could be by no one else.

Well since Alan did 'Factory' with the tiles I will go with Stig Lindberg AND Guy Sydenham! (....GS highly underrated).

I agree Alan's later work is fantastic but all that early stuff that looked like Rooke and Hudsen was rubbish imo

The early stuff you are referring to was very influential but I know what you mean. However, he did make some large pieces back then that are rare that were extremely good.

Like philpot my choice could have been one of several but today I will go with Bill Marshall, if we are talking British potters.

Bill Marshall would be up there among mine too. The very soul of the Leach tradition.

Having spoken to Bill it was clear that he was far better educated in the sources that influenced both him and Bernard Leach and was a significantly better thrower too.

I donít have just one favourite , although I guess Maltby and Wallwork are up there but not top of my current wants list. Matthew Blakely, Ben Fosker, Geoffery Swindell, Phil Rogers, Lisa Hammond and Steve Booton are still top of that list for next year but I think Iíll soon risk doubling up with the same pieces unless they get more inventive. Plus there are a few from the US that I havenít got examples of yet but that doesnít stop them being favourites- Michael Kline, Michael Simon, Wayne Branum...
I technically guess my favourite is Mark Smalley because you can never predict where heíll go next, so thereís always something new to buy

I have moved this tread to General Pottery Discussion as this section is kept for individual studio potters/potteries to aid navigation around the site.

Interesting to have 3 quite different ceramic artists. Colin Pearson is sometimes my favourite too.

Yes, tha tis interesting. Perhaps because they are liked in a more cerebral, aesthetic way than a an emotional way. 'Favourite' is often more a gut than a brain feeling.

Equally it is perhaps significant that - apart from Bill Marshall- hardly any potter from the Anglo Japanese Leach school has been mentioned. As the years go by, is the significance of Bernard Leach et al fading amongst collectors? Most of the favourite potters mentioned have a very clear and strong style of their own that identifies a piece by them instantly. Not necessarily so with a Leach style pot.
