Tiny raku cup by David Howard Jones.
No idea which way up the mark is supposed to be.

Very underrated this potter, Woolley's had a lovely tall vessel by him , green and grey as i recall and i don't think it made as much as it deserved to.

His work is almost all Raku. That probably is the trouble, as it seems that most collectors do not go for Raku much. There is David Roberts, who is up there with major potters. But after that? Tim Andrews does some nice work and is collected. I struggle to think of many more.
Which is a pity. Because David Jones does some really nice work.

Strange isn't it that a superb pot can be ignored  because of the potters chosen method of finishing, raku does seem to be a neglected area ,i think the same applies to pieces decorated with lustre.

I must admit to having a penchant for lustre... Laughter Sutton Taylor, Alan Caiger Smith & Aldermaston, Tony Laverick, Jonathan Chiswell Jones and pupils... and that is about it! We redid our kitchen when we moved into our bungalow. Nearly all white and the lustre looks nice with a stark background.

Nothing wrong with a bit of lustre it can look stunning but a lot of collectors seem to dislike it, we had a collection of De Morgan pottery which included a number of lustre pieces which looked great when the daylight grazed across them, i regret selling them sometimes as i am still really into the arts and crafts period , but we move on. Happy
