There are a few little signs that it is made less proficiently that I would expect from Aldrmaston. Flaws, bubbles in the glaze and decoration, foot glazing line, front rim lines etc I would expect them all to be a little crisper if it were someone who had made 1000 of these?

I have a piece of confirmed Aldermaston here and there are flaws in the glaze - not as many as this piece but they are there. The foot glazing line is consistent with the confirmed one also.

Yes, it was a lucky find today.
I don't know if Hazelden changed his mark when he set up his own studio after Aldermaston closed, but it is the same style of mark as ones from the 90s when he was still at Aldermaston

Actually, your jam pot is more like the style he was making after Aldermaston, where as my jug is a pattern used by other Aldermaston potters like Ursula Wraechter, so I think the mark must have stayed the same.

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 6 Empty Mary O'Gorman

Post by NaomiM Sat Oct 21, 2017 12:51 am

Looks like Mary O'Gorman's mark. Seems she was at Aldermaston during the late 80s - early 90s before returning to her native Ireland to continue potting.

All I have a general question on Aldermaston and related.Some of it rings like a bell as you would expect when flicked - But other pieces don't and there is no visible damage at all - I know waht you are goin to say but there really is no damage or even the tiniest hairline? And they are as dead as a fish??

I think this is probably a question for a separate thread on the General Pottery Discussion group. I have a similar problem on a Willie Carter plate; no obvious damage, and an earthenware core. I think it's because there's a hairline in the clay body, under the glaze. Maybe caused during the firing where the clay has cracked but not the more plastic glaze over the top.

Yes welcome to move it if needed. Seems to be a bigger problem with tin glazed earthenware than anything else.

For what its worth, this is the link to Mallams sale on Alan Caiger Smith's retirement in 2007. No pictures, but the prices are interesting. 11 years ago! Bought a couple of the lesser pieces there myself.

The mark would be for Jane O'Connor (Nee Follet)

Yes that is Jane's mark from Aldermaston.   Her husband Paul here helping to confirm this.  Jane started at the pottery in 1978 and used her maiden name Jane O'Connor until we got married in April 1980.  She then changed her mark to what you see on that piece ie 'AF' ........ from memory she worked another 4 months or so at Aldermaston before we moved up to Cambs where she taught pottery in a large secondary school.

nb The Jane O'Connor mark is an 'A' with a large 'O' around it.  Be careful as her mark can sometimes be mistaken for the one used by Edgar Campden ....... in fact we saw a mis-described lustre bowl for sale up in The Lakes a couple of years ago.  Actually it was one of Janes' and we had the pleasure of buying it back 38 yrs after she had made it !!

.......... I add that I have only just become aware of this forum. Brought back many happy memories of days spent living in Aldermaston. At that time apart from ACS and EC, the other studio potters were: Laurence McGowan, Jason Shackleton, Gill Bent (nee Careless), Simon Middleton, Catherine Bennett, Martin Wright and towards the end of our time ...... Susie Cooke-Smith & Julian Belmont.

To be at the large wood fired kiln as a lustre firing was being unloaded is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life ..........
