We ought to make it clear Naomi that this wasn't the mark that he used when he was in partnership with Alan Caiger Smith at Aldermaston but the mark that he used later.

Found this one the weekend and I'm pretty sure it's Aldermaston Pottery.
From the table above, I believe the monogram is that of Elizabeth Frith Powell

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 Empty Aldermaston Pottery Vase - but who's the potter?

Post by r-and-f Thu Oct 25, 2012 3:31 pm

Not sure if this should have been posted on the Aldermaston Pottery thread, but I hope someone can help.

This 25 cms tall albarello-shaped vase is undoubtedly from (or very closely associated with) Aldermaston Pottery. But I can't find a matching monogram on the very helpful chart of potters' marks posted at https://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t3346p15-aldermaston-pottery.

It would be nice to think that it's by Alan Caiger-Smith. Did he ever forget to do the circular squiggle at the end of his monogram?

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 Alderm10

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 Alderm11


Problem solved: I contacted Andrew Hazelden who was very helpful and has identified the vase as being by Sam Davis, made at Aldermaston between 1987 and 1991.

This is a link to the Alan Caiger Smith's studio Auction sale at Mallam's when Aldermaston pottery finally closed completely. Its very interesting for the comments Alan Caiger Smith makes on the individual pieces, and prices of course,which were high!

If anyone is in Reading, Berkshire (near Aldermaston), then the Town Hall/Museum has a permanent display of Aldermaston. Some of the pieces are very large indeed.

"Forty of the pieces here are from the collection of David Castillejo, Alan's principal patron. Other works include some that Alan kept"


Museum entry is Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 896643 FREE Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 896643 and you can just walk in when they are open (see link below). You'll want the first floor 'Atrium Gallery'. There is a glass lift up to the where the goods are and the Museum's Postcode is RG1 1QH. Well worth a visit. Most Excellent

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 Empty Ursula Waechter

Post by kitling Sat Aug 17, 2013 10:08 pm

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum.
I was wondering whether anyone might be able to help me with this bowl that my mum bought at a charity shop. Its diameter is around 25cm. It looks a bit Aldermaston pottery-esque but the potter's mark shows that it's not. I'm just curious to know who the potter might be!

Thank you very much in advance!

(Apologies for the stuff in the bowl. We were using it to hold some shards of a terracotta thing that was knocked over by some foxes.)

Actually, the inscribed mark may be for Ursula Waechter.
The decoration is more like her stuff and Aldermaston Pottery. The other two potters, McGowan and Hamid, developed more individual styles after setting up on their own.

I think that it is Ursula Waechter, who has been back potting in the Aldermaston area since 2001 where her work is still very much in this style.

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 Empty Small 5 inch Aldermaston bowl unsigned - confirmation pls

Post by RVsaid Thu Dec 05, 2013 9:08 am

Hi

A little 5 inches across and 3.25 inches tall bowl. The decoration is saying Aldermaston to me however it is not signed to base. Base has a raised rim with a swirl inside.

Could anyone indentify the maker/artist please.

Yes it's by one of the Aldermaston potters, although, without a mark it's difficult to say by who, or if it was made before or after Aldermaston closed.
Possibly Ursula Waechter or Laurence McGowan

Edgar Campden cereal bowl. Not sure what all the other marks are around the AC monogram, or why he'd bother on what is otherwise a very ordinary little bowl.

DAVIES Sam 1987-91

HARKNESS Juliet 1969-72

HAMID Mohamed 1983-86

HAZELDEN Andrew 1984-93

McDONNELL Myra 1992-

MICHAEL Kristine 1992

MIDDLETON Simon 1976-80

NERGER Silke 1991-

O'CONNOR Jane (nee FOLLET) 1978-80

O'GORMAN Mary 1985-89

PILVEN Peter 1980-81

RAJAGOPAL Padma 1990

SHACKLETON Jason 19??-??

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 2 Empty Jane O’Connor

Post by NaomiM Thu Jun 12, 2014 10:31 pm

Jane O'Connor  ( not Edgar Campden )



The circular part of the mark is in 2 separate arcs which was a characteristic of Janes'.  Also I note the design is floral, which was a theme that Jane pursued when she did her own stuff at Aldermaston.

She would have made it in 1979 or very early in 1980.  (not 1978, when she started, as she was probably not let loose on such pieces until she got into the swing of things)
