I spoke to Joan Sydenham when buying the smaller one and she remembered that it was from the first firing when they moved to Long Island

When you watch the video there is a section where they open a kiln on Green Island See if you can spot your mermaid. I am sure there is one in the frame somewhere.

He is something that will never come onto the market during my lifetime.  I rescued this after Guy died.  Pulpit Rock.  I had seen it in the studio while he was alive, but after he died I could only see the rock column, and wondered where the rest of it was.  

On a subsequent visit I was down the garden in what was Guy's pottery that had become Joans potting shed.  While Joan was showing us her plants I saw a piece of what looked like broken pottery propping up a seed tray.  

Upon closer inspection it turned out the be the triangular piece from Portland Rock.  I asked Joan if she knew where the slab was.  She couldnt remember seeing anywhere.

I had a good search in the studio but no luck.  Later we were sitting in the conservatory having a cup of teaand on the floor under the table was a basket of bits of broken pot.  My wife said "I s that what you are looking for" pointing at the basket.  Sure enough there it was. So I was able to reunite the three pieces upon which Joan insisted I kept them.  I love the piece. Guy talked a lot about Pulpit Rock.

Guy did some plaques of it. There was one in the Conservatory with a huge crack across it. I did a version of it but not up to Guy's standard

This is an interesting piece. I am pretty sure Guy made it for Joan as she was a ballerina in her younger days. Great pity it was broken when I found it. I have repaired it but I am far from a restorer and its value doesnt justify the expense of giving it a professional.
It was obviously made on the islands as its salt glazed No idea what the letters/numbers on the back mean apart from Guy did keep records.

Joan showed me some similar pieces that were made when she taught ballet, I think they were made for girls who attended class but my memory is not great
