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

Sadly Alan Caiger Smith died on February 21 2020. He was 90 years old. The owner and inspiration of Aldermaston Pottery. One of the truly Great Potters of the golden age of studio pottery.

A fine obituary in the GUARDIAN. Informative as well.

I'll repost this painting of Alan that hangs in the permanent Aldermaston gallery in Reading Town Hall Museum (free).

I would love to see the Caiger Smith collection in Reading. Was not most of it based on the accumulation of one the major collectors of his work?

Yeah

Here is my old photo set

http://www.briglin.com/exhibition-reading-museum-aldermaston-pottery

“From the 1960s Reading Museum collected Aldermaston pottery, and in 1999 it was given an extraordinary lustreware collection by David Castillejo, a major patron of Caiger-Smith. The potter subsequently gave the Museum a range of non-lustre pots from his own collection and the Reading Foundation for Art and the Friends of Reading Museums acquired further complementary pieces. These contemporary pots complement the Museum’s other ceramic collections, such as the important early tin-glaze earthenware in the Blatch and Tufnell Collections which inspired Alan Caiger-Smith as a boy.”

That is terrific!
Thanks.
The best selection of Alan Caiger Smith pottery I think I have ever seen is his 'retirement' sale at Mallams Oxford in 2006. Some beautiful work, with prices to match!

There is some exquisite work there. The boar's head looks oddly out of place, though; it would be so much better hanging on my kitchen wall

Ahh the boars head is from the infamous pub of the same name in the centre of Reading town that was the sort you wiped your feet on the way out. I last saw that twenty years ago hanging over the entrance. it's made of concrete I think
