Louis Hudson incorporated those white-ish curved parts into his work. Did Louis have any connections to Alan or Bernard?

I believe Hudson, Wallwork and Rooke shared studios in the early years. Certainly there was a bit of cross pollination (or borrowing of clay and molds) in the Rooke/Wallwork years

There doesn't seem to be much info' about Louis on the www - at least I can't find any. I did wonder if he also went to Goldsmiths.

Hudson worked as an assistant to Alan in Greenwich when Alan sub-let part of his premises to Bernard Rooke too. Another part was rented by Alan to the Fourniers and that is where Robert nick the idea of making the forms that he is most appreciated for.

Alan and Bernard discussed ideas together and so there was many similarities in their work from that period. Alan thought Sheila Fournier was far more talented than her husband, which I think is true.

When Hudson moved to the West Country Alan says that he helped him out with equipment etc. and somewhere on this Forum I recall Alan moaning that Hudson still owes him some money!

So do we not need a Wallwork/Hudson/Rooke/Fournier book?

Many thanks for the input, SP

From memory, which isn't great, I read that Louis Hudson began potting around 1971. Maybe that date is when he got his own studio. What years would you say he was assisting and renting a space from Alan Wallwork at Greenwich?

Louis Hudson didn't rent a space at Greenwich but work for Alan there and so it would have been around 1964/5, from what Alan has told me. Although Alan moved to Marnhull in 1965 he wasn't able to get rid of the lease at Greenwich until several years later and I know that he continued to rent out the building to various potters after 1965 but am not aware from Hudson was one of them.

It an interesting point that Alan Wallwork was a highly successful businessman. For near 25 years he ran what was virtually a production pottery with up to 14 assistants at peak times. Both in London and Dorset, with major contracts for tiles, and a long standing upmarket contract with Heals.
