ANDREW MATHESON- Staffordshire

Post by tudorrose on October 29th 2009, 6:04 pm

Hi,

I have posted this pot, which is a Andrew Matheson who is based in Lichfield Staffordshire. I adore it, it reminds us of the milky way...... However, I find the mark confusing, which leads me to ask:-

Where do I find a comprehensive list of pottery names and marks? Mike was informed by Mr Matheson that his name was documented on the "marks" list, but I cannot find it.

Also on previous occasions someone assumed I had gone through a pottery mark book?

Can anyone enlighten me please. All I want to do is look up a set of initial or go through a list. I have tried studiopottery.com but he is not on there.

Sorry if I have posted in the wrong place, Sharron

Last year I found a whole range of storage jars and bowls by Andrew Matheson in a charity shop! Extremely accomplished studio pottery with nice tenmoku glazes.

The book British studio potters marks ,by Robert Fournier has over 700 pages (including matheson), loads of initials are in the book ,but that still doesn't even come close to Id'ing all the marks out there , that i am afraid is an impossibility.

Bit of a long shot this one but does anyone recognise this monogram? I'm guessing Japanese?

Thanks for the successful ID Dave. It really is a lovely piece - looking forward to discovering more about this potters work. I was fortunate in that the bowl had a companion piece by the same artist. I've added a picture below.

You'll have to pop over to Lichfield, his studio is usually open to visitors and is located in the city centre so easily accessible.
