Alan Wallwork - Page 6 Empty Alan Wallwork winged vessel (sycamore seed)

Post by bistoboy February 12th 2014, 6:45 pm

here is an unusual winged vessel, perhaps modeled on a sycamore seed?  There don't appear to be any makers marks, but the base has a depression in the middle (similar looking to a glass vase which has had it's pontil polished out).

any ideas?

Looks like a pair of lungs. Wrong shape for a pair of sycamore seeds.

I thought Wallwork used a lighter/greyer clay? I'm afraid it's not saying Wallwork to me.

It looks like a hobby potter trying to produce something in the manner of AW. Not made as Alan would have done from a technical point of view.

a very attractive object though, if it was a hobby potter he/she would have been very pleased with it

as a matter of interest, how does Alan make his vessels? are they handmoulded or made on a wheel some how?

This too.

If it is Wallwork's then maybe he didn't mark it because he wasn't happy with how it turned out.

Well it's a classic example of where a name makes all the difference. If it can be attributed to Wallwork then people will think it must be good, but otherwise, I agree with SP, it looks like a hobby potter trying to copy him.

They are mostly bowls thrown on a wheel and then altered, joined and the decoration done by incising or poking holes in them.

I almost wrote 'I prefer Bisty's seed to some of Alan's earlier stuff' but luckily I spotted the carry on connotations Big Laughter

this thread is very interesting as it emphasizes Alan's talent and eye for detail when making his nature based sculptures

I have had an email from Alan confirming that this piece is by him, that he did Sometimes miss signing pieces and that he made very few like this shape. Coolio!!! :-)

I am surprised but if the man said it was his then he would know. Did he mentioned when he was likely to have made it?

No, he didn't say when. But he mentioned that because they're quite fragile, he didn't expect many to have survived and that certainly those he had kept, hadn't faired well.
