Kenneth Clarke? A name that is always associated with Anne Wynne Reeves. He was a prolific tile maker.

...... and Pilkington. They were sold as unglazed blanks and Alan Wallwork used them too. I suspect because Alan had been taught by Kenneth Clark at Goldsmiths and so you might say that he, Clark, was the originator within the studio pottery world.

They look like glaze tests to me.

In an obituary it was said that Kenneth Clark (no e) " was to tiles what James Dyson is to vacuum cleaners".

He founded Kenneth Clark Ceramics in the 1950s and was joined there by his wife, Anne Wynne Reeves.

DTM is there any numbers on the back - I think you can work out the date of the blank from the dots and numbers on the back?
