A clear style and a very talented potter, but unmarked. Any ideas? Stunning but unmarked 20210210

I though the same but I've never come across an unmarked abuja! The clay colour for abuja is usually reddish too.

I checked with Chris Lewis as I thought it might be one of his, but he says no. Guess this is one of those pots where we will just never know!

Abuja, Chris Lewis? It is well made so there must be more pieces in similar style by the same potter out there.

I keep thinking Briglin and Richard & Susan Parkinson.

I can see Briglin vases with similar shape but smaller. But did Briglin always use a red clay? Maybe one of their potters?

A number of potters trained at Briglin, so probably 'after-Briglin'.

I will do when it arrives! I'll take better pictures in general.

Pattern looks more like wax-resist than traditional incised sgraffito though if that helps.

Wondering now if its early Ambleside/George Cook?

So, its definitely looks like nuka and tenmoku glaze, the pattern is not incised, so either rubbed through the glaze or wax resist maybe.

The finer pieces at Briglin used a similar technique where there is a black oxide underneath a lighter glaze and it bubbles up through in globules but this has been done with different colours. I don't think it's British. It's a nice pot.


This is a miniature Briglin Pot, not a normal one. 50mm across
