I bought this a while ago as Sheila Fournier but the Mark has extra dots & I don’t know whether she dated pieces. In my mark book it indicates She & Robert finished their work at Leacock in 1987.
6” bowl, green glaze outside, Speckled brown inside. What would these glazes be? Well modelled feet with what look like she’ll impressions. SF 93 marks.

Yes, this was made at my workshop at Langdon Barton, near Dawlish in South Devon. I am an ex Farnham student, there between 1979-81. A very good friend of Patrick Sargent and studying under Paul Barron and Henry Hammond, with many good visiting tutors, e.g. Takeshi Yasuda.
The pot itself was wood-fired to about 1300’c, ash-glazed externally with an iron bearing clay glaze inside.
The pottery was only producing for about 2 years before I had to relocate, and then the next one folded before I could even get going. Such is life. I lost impetus and steered off in another direction. The death of Patrick was a hard blow and I couldn’t find the incentive I needed to get going. Nevertheless, it’s good to see there are still a few pieces out there in people’s collections; thanks for posting!

Simon, that’s really helpful of you to send in details about your pottery. I guess the loss to potting was a gain for painting. Thanks again and I will look out for more of your work.

Thanks Ben, though, as I said in the linked post, I’d like to reiterate that I’m not the other Simon Fletcher, working in France...
