Very interesting article/blog from Reading Museum on Alan Caiger Smith the potter, and his long relationship with the Museum. Lovely photos and link to a film.

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 10 Empty Aldermaston Pottery Alan Caiger-Smith Pleasing Plate

Post by RVsaid August 16th 2020, 9:07 am

1963 right?

Nice piece, may be a keeper, some 25 cm across.

Man I remember finding Aldermaston pieces all the time whilst living in Reading, just do not find that many pieces by Alan any more. If you have not already and when things improve, you must check out his exhibit at the Reading Museum. I missed the auctioning off of the pieces from his studio but I believe that is where the museum gained a lot of the larger pieces from and well worth a visit.

2006 at Mallams was his final retirement auction. Just as well you did not make it. All the auction records for Alan Caiger Smith was made at that auction.

True. Good idea! 😆
It’s in a dark corner of the local “vintage emporium” misrepresented as “jersey?” so most likely it’s still there.
I’ll think about it...

There is still a lot of Aldermaston pottery around. A team of up to 8 potters over more than 30 years produced a lot of pottery. There are 48 pieces on Ebay at the moment. A pot without a lid is probably a buy you will regret.....we have all done it!

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 10 Empty Aldermaston large lidded pot by Mary O'Gorman or Gill Bent?

Post by benwilliams November 2nd 2020, 9:28 pm

Big lidded pot with 2 handles.
I’ve trawled through the marks, lost marks and apprentice marks on the Aldermaston thread but coudn’t see one like this.
I’ll put 2 photos of the mark on as I’m not even sure which way round it is, probably the first way though.

It doesn't seem to directly match any monograms.
Mary O'Gorman used loopy marks, so just maybe her.

This is a gem. A Flog It in Fill piece with Alan Caiger Smith in full flow in the pottery. The glimpse of the reference collection upstairs is fascinating.

There must be some hoarders of ACS out there with fantastic collections as these lovely pieces come up in good numbers.

There were some lovely pieces in Alan Caiger Smith's retirement sale in 2007. I went hoping for some bargains. Prices went through the roof sadly. Got nothing apart from the catalogue!  That first Cross for instance, went for £1300.

Revisiting this and it does look like an Aldermaston shape, and an AB monogram for Aldermaston and potter’s initial

Yes it does, Christopher Bayley and Bernard Cass, both used AB marks, but not like this,
Then there's the Mystery Blackiston (Anne?) who also did, according to Goddens.

It’s Aldermaston Pottery. Looks like Ann Follet’s mark from the list of apprentices

Is it possible to pin this signature to a particular Aldermaston designer? Lovely little pot but lost its lid unfortunately.
