I remember that during the Midwinter craze days that Steven Jenkins was researching in order to put together an Ambleside Pottery book before he did the second Midwinter book. At the time, I knew nothing about Ambleside but now wish that he had gone ahead.

I would love a book.  Wah if someone with knowledge would put it together, it's a bit of a niche market. Speaking to Brian there was so much I didn't know. Need to get him to come here and post his collection. I tend towards the dirty looking sgraffito but he had some other wondaful slipware pieces

Brian - those Eva Makay pieces are so quirky - reminds me of Stig Lindberg or even Terry Gilliam. Love the to birds , doves? Again you never know quite what you ill see next with Ambleside. Very creative. Thanks for posting - we don't see a great deal of quality items

Any guesses as to what thy were made for…

Nope

Then let us up the quality of the Ambleside pottery and show what they were all about….creative and way ahead of their time…
The two sleeve pieces were made to humidify a room on the new fangled radiators that were put in “modern” homes….they were filled with water and hung by wires from the holes on to the radiators thus releasing water vapour when the radiators heated up….rare items…

Mid 50s will be spot on…….possibly later but definitely cook period (48/68) and distinctively different from the hand painted pieces produced during the Jackson period (68/82)

This piece is also cook period but shows a much finer style of sgraffito work than most pieces…..with a hand painted surface also…..marked for Ambleside and a large size nearing 13”.

Just don't see this sort of stuff any more, perhaps once or twice a year on Ebay [if you are lucky] and it's just not in mainstream auctions

This thread is growing by the day, great examples, there is a mention in the V & A
studio pottery book that none other than Bernard Leach critisized Cook for using
"industrial" chemical glazes to get the blues, rather than using natural substances.

Ambleside Pottery - Page 4 Empty Cook versus Leach

Post by Potteryman January 7th 2022, 7:27 pm

That’s right George Cook was often criticised by the more establishment potters with his techniques and colours used….I for one champion him for not conforming to cream on brown….and for ploughing his own path….under rated still but not for too much longer….
