moved from the Alex Sharp thread because there was a question over attribution - Admin



I agree that his work can be very variable, but his best pieces are outstanding.  Over a long career at Morar Pottery and then on the Island of Bute he worked in many different styles using many different clays and glazes and a confusing number of seals and incised marks, most of which are not recorded in BSPM.  I haven't seen anything else by Alex Sharp using either the style or the mark of your teapot, but that doesn't mean that I am doubting that it's by him.

Cheers. All I can say with certainty is it's a superior piece of potting, with a striking glaze design. I like it a lot, enough to risk the wrath of her ladyship for bringing home more stuff

Hi Studio-Pots, here we are and some more besides

Can we consider again whether this is by Alex Sharp? It was IDed as such but there is no pottery mark and the potter's mark is different.

I'm sceptical because I don't recognise the style of making or the decoration as being anything like Alex Sharp's other work. But on the other hand, as you can see from my pictures, he worked in such a wide range of styles and used so many different marks and had such a very long potting career, that anything's possible. It might just be that your teapot is one of his later post-retirement garden-shed productions.
