1956 Pathé film of John Virando and Philip Roberts making clay animals at the Cleveland Pottery (about which I can find nothing more) in  Soho.

Yes DD these are the very Briglinesque animals that he continued to make after leaving. They are relativity common and pop up often. I was wondering if Dan's pig was unusual.

I spotted one of these pigs being decorated right at the end of the 1956 Pathé film of John Virando and Philip Roberts making clay animals

The woman who sold him to me had spent many years trying to find out who made him but she didn't have our forum to help her

He was a senior potter so he could have made the basic shape in his sleep. He's added some flourishes to the form but it's the glazes that I find unusual. Unusual TY
