These are unique. They were on a cardigan Joan knitted. She gave it to Jenny years ago. The cardigan has deteriorated, so she took the buttons off. Cant tell if Guy or Joan made them Could be either I suppose. Made on Portland I reckon

Yes is glass with cobalt carbonate mixed in. Guy used any glass like an old bottle which he would smash up Put on an already glazed pot and sprinkle some carbonate on is and re fire it.

The top one has what Guy called a meander pattern which took me a while to learn how to master it. Rather than carve the pattern as you see it. He would cut parallel lines then cut across half way between then in an alternating way to produce that sort of key pattern.

They candle holder with the dripped glass was in fact pure chance. He said it just happened in the kiln

I adopted the idea on some of my pieces but found broken glass was very hit and miss so I bought glass granules about the size of sugar with a lower melting point from Germany. I had several tubs of different colours.  I left them all at night school when I gave up pottery. I used some on this clock I made
