It is an acorn form and, as you say, it is unusually brown for Alan, which probably would help date it...…………… but it doesn't help me! It seems to me to be after he left Greenwich and if pushed I would go for it being 1970s but to be honest I have no great confidence it that being correct.

the style reminds me of the pieces he made before the AW mark, does this mean it was made on the cusp?

He did continue to make them when he had exhibitions with me but he never made them in great quantity. I suppose there was a lot of work in them for the size and, as he priced things on size, there was probably more profit in making other forms of a similar size.

That's why I went for it being from the 1970s.

I think JoetheHat must have bought it, as he was there queuing hours before I opened that day.

Joe knows his stuff, very successful piece that. Going back to what SP said about Alan wanting them to be used, I've never seen a piece of Alan's with anything in it. They never get used as vases. it's not the form that is too strong or the texture as if they were sprayed plain white they still would not work will if they have this inverted shape.

This is 14 in high by 11in wide. Just love the symmetry of it. That whirl towards the centre which draws your eye wherevere you look. Bought in London a few years ago. Wonder if Studio had handled it at Harlequin?

Alan used to put dried plants in them.

It mostly likely originally came from me but it isn't that unusual a shape and so it is not possible to be certain. There was an art dealer in Kensington, who bought a number of pieces that size from me over the years, and it could be one of those. The person in question subsequently died and I believe his stock was sold in auction after the gallery closed.

The Gallery Upstairs was Reg Moon, Torquil Pottery. He was a very good potter, but he also ran an important gallery. The shop donwstaits was fairly small, but the upstairs display place, and the garden were terrific. They held several shows a year, and sold a lot of high quality stiudio pottery

I'm sure that I have written this elsewhere but I was introduced to Reg Moon maybe 15 years ago by Mary Rich at Art in Clay. The first thing he said to me was,

"You deal with Alan Wallwork, don't you?"

After I said yes he came back with,


"Is he as obnoxious to you as he is to me?"


To which my reply was,


"I suspect so. I've always taken it as a sign that he likes me."


It's a fine looking Oval, Davee.
