Well observed! I love tactile pieces like this, as long as I don't drop them!

It is with sadness that I have to report that Alan died in hospital this morning after a long illness. Not only was he a fine artist but also a good friend and his passing is a great loss to the studio ceramic world.

He must be up there amongst the best potters of the 'Golden Age' of studio pottery. His was a unique and wonderful body of work. Totally individualistic with a total original Organic vision. I suspect his pots will live on, long after other fashions have died. Sad day.

Yes he an certainly has a seat at the Golden Age table of British Ceramics.

I still think it a great shame that there is not a book published as a full record of his work.

Being partly involved with two previous attempts at such a book that were vetoed by the man himself, it could possibly happen. It's too early to discuss at this point but, if the family are happy for it to go ahead in the future, who knows.

A group of small items that I sold a few years ago. They are from various time periods and the tile on the left and the one on the right at the back are both "one - off" trial pieces executed by Alan himself.

I thought you might be going to be very flash and use Photoshop to remove the pots in front and fill in the tile!!

It seems that since his death, prices for Alan Wallwork's work are starting to rise sharply. In the last two Maak sales.
https://maaklondon.irostrum.com/live/legacy/search/cce77831-8337-e811-80c2-0003ff3952e8?keyword=wallwork

Just yesterday a 16.5 cm split pod went for £776 on Ebay.

Pure irony really, and somewhat sad. An artist's true worth seems only to be recognised after his death. Shrugs

Not sure it’s worth or scarcity. While a potter is still alive people think they’re still making. Supply v’s Demand. But once they’re dead then there’s a finite number and scarcity starts to push up the price.

Plus online costs and Buyer's premium puts the hammer price up circa 30% more. £640 or so, and it was not a particularly striking piece.
Methinks Naomi is probably right. A few people taking a punt on the future on prices which are peanuts in modern Art terms, Tho it would be really nice to think that his inherent artistic talent thjat was being recognised

15 to 20 years ago when I was exhibiting Alan's work on a regular basis, one of my customers ran a gallery that just sold modern conceptual art but bought Wallworks for himself.

I've always had a fondness for Alan Wallwork, as it is amongst the first pieces of pottery we bought in the Devon Guild at Bovey Tracey. 25 years or so ago. His work just stood out. Apparently it was a very good outlet for him.

In the early days of the CPA, Alan was an active member and on the Committee for a number of years. However, he stopped being actively involved and supply them with pots when their mark up increased dramatically and there was also the problem of getting his pots to Central London. Basically, he had to reduce his margins i.e. lower his profit. Being a member of the Devon Guild meant that getting things to them was much easier and a more pleasant drive. Their mark up was also less than most retail outlets, so it was a no brainer for him to sell at Bovey rather than London.
