That's what I was hoping when I bought it Chris , the impressed mark has been made kinda slanted , I don't know much about her Stoneware work , but it was very very different from her porcelain frilly pieces , I will keep looking and see if I can find anything similar , Cheers Ed

I have a 'pebble pot' on Pinterest attributed to her.

Mary Rogers' work seems to be doing very well at auction these days and so I thought I would start a thread about her here.


Mary Rogers, who was born in Derbyshire in 1929 and retired from potting in 1991, was a leading exponent of hand-built sculptural ceramics from the 1960s onwards. Her delicate forms based on nature were more suited to porcelain, which she began using around 1970, and this work, made by coiling and pinching, resulted in her becoming one of the most sought after British studio potters by the end of that decade. The two pieces here date from around 1972/3.

They are not the usual things that I buy but they came my way and both have been sold.

The little devil at the back, which was less than 11cm tall, sold for 2560 last week at Maak auctions, including commission, VAT + ARR. A "little" more than what I got for it less than two years ago.

Paul Rice had good nickname for Mary Rogers,and the people who copied her. The 'frilly knickers' school. Laughter
Mary Rogers work has never been cheap, Looked at a fair amount of it at auctions, and have always thought it somewhat expensive for what it was. The market is obviously looking for the next 'big thing' and I s'pose, given that Mary Rogers does have a track record of being fairly expensive, its only logical. Whether the stratospheric prices are wise....now that's another matter.

Personally, it might be pretty but it's not art and the price of that little piece is barmy but what I think is of little interest to the people, who buy such nick-nacks. When I had it most of my regular customers never gave it a second glance let alone picked it up to check the price, as it was of no interest.
