Too early for Hazleden, I would think, if they were bought in the 60s

Here are some of mine, the pattern is not random but repeats.

The x3 on the left and the Lustre 10A A13 = David Tipler - other two are Jason Shackleton post Aldermaston ..... I probably have x25 of these somewhere?

New ACS Book: "The Legacy of Aldermaston Pottery"

Post by paulfoll on December 9th 2018, 7:12 am

This is a note to those that appreciate and love all things "Aldermaston" and who have an understanding of what Alan Caiger-Smith achieved through pottery. †Yesterday 8th Dec 2018 there was a book launch at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford of "Alan Caiger-Smith & the Legacy of Aldermaston Pottery" it is published by The Ashmolean. †About 200 people were in attendance including 30 or so of the 60 potters who had worked with Alan over the years

A wonderful presentation was given in a lecture theatre by: Jane White a potter who has compiled the book, Timothy Wilson who is the Honorary Curator of Western Art at the Ashmolean and Julian Bellmont who worked for 14 years with Alan. †Alan at the age of 88 also stood for over half an hour imparting much of his artistic philosophy and relating significant events from the 51 years of Aldermaston - just wonderful to hear him in full flow. †Then he took questions for a similar time. This was followed by a book signing at the museum shop when we got our hands on the book for the first time. † † †

The book runs to over 250 pages and includes lots of photographs, many taken by Julian. †Lots of the potters provided content, their stories of what went on and the impact that the pottery had on their lives makes the greatest of reading.

The book also includes a full list of date marks until 2006, an alphabetical list of all the potters plus a timeline recording the individuals who worked in each calendar year from 1956 to 1993. †Until such time as permission is given, it is not the right thing to reproduce any of the book here.

Suffice to say for £20 + £3.99 UK shipping you can secure your own copy direct from the Ashmolean by following this link: † https://shop.ashmolean.org/alan-caiger-smith-and-the-legacy-of-the-aldermaston-pottery-paperback.html

just enough time to get one as a Christmas present for someone! ......... happy reading




Paul ........ husband of one of the happy band of Aldermaston potters.

just had a look at these pottery marks and trying to make some sense of them, certainly they are not the same potter.

if as is stated they were from the 60's then my guesses would be Elizabeth Frith-Powell 1964-68 for the 'P' shaped one, whilst the other mark might possibly be a Geoffrey Eastop 1956-60. †Just a contribution to the discussion ....... I'm no authority on such things! †

Thank you for posting this.That is terrific! Just ordered one. If ever there was a need for such a book, this was it. There were a couple of other reference sources including the 1993 exhibition, but nothing on this scale. Ii is also available on Amazon

New ACS Book: "The Legacy of Aldermaston Pottery"

Post by paulfoll on December 9th 2018, 10:22 am

Thx .......... I think if I had a wish, could I be so bold to ask that any purchases be made through the Ashmolean Museum link as above. The museum as publishers have gone to considerable effort to make this book happen and I think the money is best going direct to their hands.

In the Alan Caiger Smith newly published book, red lustre goblets seem popular. There are four illustrations of them.

The things one learns from books. Alan Caiger Smith's grandfather Harold Massey was a cousin of Bernard Leach. He ran an Egineering Company in Manchester, and actually designed the big oil burning kiln at the Leach pottery in St Ives. Bernard Leach himself was very supportive of the Caiger Smith family after the death of Alan Caiger Smith's father in 1935. He often stayed with the family, and there were lots of Leach pots in the house. Alan Caiger Smith himself often visited the St Ives pottery, and he and David Leach became great friends. Indeed it was David Leach who suggested using the Fremington clay that was the base for most of the work produced at Aldermaston. It is a small world!

This gleaned - and much more- from the book mentioned earlier in this thread. ALAN CAIGER SMITH and the Legacy of the Aldermaston Pottery by Jane White,

It is one of the most interesting books I have read on a Craft pottery.

The date and potter marks are below

Often it's a bit of guesswork, they are all so similar and done in haste.

Aldermaston in some shape of form? The decoration looks of the style of Aldermaston , but not quite. The prominent A does make one wonder if is a loosely written Aldermaston mark. Or possibly one of the many potters who worked there and loosely worked on in an Aldermaston style for a period?

Cheers. I was so sure it was something like Wye because of the shape and decoration that I dismissed Aldermaston. If it is by her then it must have been her own design; I havenít seen other Aldermaston lidded boxes
