A selection of the scarce Ambleside pottery slipware egg cups.I have a large collection of Ambleside egg cups but only 9 are slipware.All signed or incised Ambleside all “cook” period 1948/68 again showing his much derided colours.More power to him I say.Ambleside Pottery - Page 5 D34ec510

Not seen a single slipware eggcup come up on Ebay. Not slipware. Very unusual. The blue goblet is not my fav, but the black two are very strong decorations, not a fan of that tapering base - looks impractical? Do they dink OK?

The eggs cups are scarce items but do come up sometimes….the tankards are nicer in the hand than the images.The off shape and tapered base of two of them is their charm but they are all stable and fit for purpose.I would imagine they were all used and thus got binned once chipped etc….

A George cook piece from the Ambleside pottery.Fully marked for both the pottery and himself.A classic piece of his sgraffito work.I prefer his work over the Jackson period pieces for several reasons one being the more simplistic but equally effective work.Ambleside Pottery - Page 5 2decb810

A more complex even experimental piece from George Cook at his Ambleside pottery.The vase is wax resist overlaid with a white enamel and fired on a brown base.Ambleside Pottery - Page 5 F9cf5a10

The effect being most unusual and not something I have seen on a vase before but I have seen it on slab pieces.Fully marked for Cook and Ambleside.A lovely piece.

Lovely - the cook pieces have that gritty, dirty, spontaneous feel, love them. So not seen much wax resist - assuming its unusual? Did Jackson do any?

I wish there was a good book

I couldn’t have described his pieces better…..He would go over mistakes and carry on….Jackson’s were much more refined and definitely produced much more crisp and accurate sgraffito work…The only other good wax resist work signed by cook that I know of belongs to you now I have never seen any that I would say was Jackson…

A rare advertisement for Ambleside pottery I though the board like like to see and look at the sheer variety of the work George Cook produced at the pottery…..

Brian - I adjusted it and reposted larger. When you see all these old photos of what are clearly top pieces at the time (they would not have photographed the rubbish) I can't help but wonder where they are now, probably lucky is just one survives.

Yeah that top bowl, such confident throwing rings and lovely shape flared but tapering in. I even like the wonky top lip.

Following on from my previous post showing a large bowl which was stated “cook” period here is a larger bowl with resist decoration which is marked “cook” in his distinctive chiselled style….Early most likely 50sAmbleside Pottery - Page 5 Dcf3dd10

l love the foot and the outside throwing rings on that one. Wonky top and all those bubble imperfections in the glaze all add to the grittiness of it.
