David Sharp blue floral duck - quite a big one at 10.5 ins 260 mm long. The Rye backstamp - is that Rye Pottery, or DS's Rye Art Pottery? I am trying to work out the date for these floral patterned animals.

Another variation of the bull - possibly a bison? - signed by David Sharp. This one is in a black satin glaze with the section at the back in a coarser, very dark charcoal. The difference between the two colour/glazes is very subtle.

I visited the pottery in Oct 2002, in the hope of picking up some nice pieces.
But it seemed that they were in the process of changing design style Sad

The vast majority of what they had was this blue and white flower design.
The only item I came away with, was this bull in the older style - I'd have bought more if they had any. But they didn't have any other animals or bulls in this style.
I don't know when they started this new style, but I guess it must have been around that time, 2000 - 2002 ??

Rye tankard.

I read somewhere that the stars and dots pattern was introduced for the Festival Of Britain exhibition, 1951, but I can't corroborate that.

That's very interesting early decoration by David Sharp - not seen anything quite as interesting by him from that period.

Thank you, the backstamp has confused me as it states made in rye, rather than the more usual made in rye pottery? I guessed it was made whilst he was at the rye pottery, and like you said, a bit earlier. It is growing on me Happy x x

Yes it is from when he was working at the Rye Pottery (1947- 1956) - I would imagine towards the end of his time there.

I held a selling exhibition called "The Potteries of Rye" back in 1999 where we launched Carol Cashmore's book of the same name. Below is an image from the invitation card so excuse the quality. Both pieces in the image are from the Rye Pottery with the dish being by Dennis Townsend and if my memory serves me correctly the lamp base being painted by David Sharp.

Very nice plate mowen - unfamiliar pattern which probably makes it quite rare.

They were allowed to do one-off decorations in this manner at the Rye Pottery. These they signed and they were sold as individual "studio wares". Little guidence was given and I haven't seen any pieces that have been identical.

Picked this pair up today. 5.5" high. One missing it's top. I'm assuming they're from the 1950s.

I quite like those too although not my favourite colourway. Are they for oil or vinegar or something similar?
