There are keen collectors for Aldermaston pottery but Alan Caiger-Smith does command a premium. For the rest it depends on the decoration. Some pieces are more decorative than others.

Andrew Hazelden is definitely one of the more interesting and long lasting potters that practiced at Aldermaston. He is probably the only potter left still making in such a strongly Aldermaston style. As his show page at his present Yarnton pottery illustrates.
http://www.yarntonpottery.net/shop

He started worked at Aldermaston in 1984. He was one of the people who carried on as a self employed potter at the site after the Aldermaston pottery as such closed in 1994. In fact he worked there right up until the premises finally shut in 2006. It is quite noticeable how many of the lustre pieces that Alan Caiger Smith made post 1994, also bear Andrew Hazelden's initials as a contributor the the making of those pieces.

I hear he’s recently retired, or semi retired. I don’t know if potters ever fully retire if they can still throw a pot.

There is an huge long list of studio potter who never really 'retired'. They just did less. Which comes top of all the best advice for a long life. Keep yourself occupied, in an environment and atmosphere that you enjoy.

Just posting this here as an example of Nick Caiger-Smith’s N mark. He returned to potting in the late 90s and is still making Aldermaston style lustre ware at The Ridings, New Road Hill, Reading, Berks

Maybe because Alan Caiger Smith ceased taking on assistants in 1993, so it became a co-operative with the established potters still there?

I believe this is by David Tipler. The Pre-decimal price on the base would fit with his dates

Post by P C October 4th 2019, 8:57 am

Hello.

I have a bowl by the Studio Potter Alan Caiger-Smith.

His makers marks are slightly complicated on this bowl.
His signature is clear and I think the year mark is 1995.
Could anyone please help with the other marks?
aldermaston - Aldermaston Pottery - Page 9 69324d10

I am not sure if you will be able to see the photo I have tried to attach.
If not this is a waisted post, sorry.

Thank you for reading this.

It could be 1974 or 1995, I think the earlier mark matches the circular Made in England stamp

The other marks apart- from the year marks, signature and pottery marks (which they tended to use on earlier pieces)- are glaze codes for lustre glazes used. They were virtually re-inventing a lot of the lustre glazes used, and were experimenting with many different lustre glazes which they needed a clear record for. Lustre glazing being a very haphazard and difficult process.
It would be nice to see if it is a lustre piece!

I think it’s David Tipler’s mark. He was apprenticed and then employed at Aldermaston from 1961-75
