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

no it's an old photo that I found when de -cluttering my computer memory files.
The reason why I'm such a huge fan of Guys work is our shared love of marine life

I remember seeing a couple of mermaids sat on similar pieces in Guy's studio but the spout on this one might prove uncomfortable!

Ahhhh yes thats why I remember it. Would have been nice have the mermaid it was made for. Sadly I have no idea what the situation is with whats left in the studio. Joan is not up to visitors any more. Its all down to Rusell to dispose of when she passes on.

I spotted the cups and thought about putting in a decent bid for them rather than the miniscule bid I actually entered. The pattern is in H & A page 109 and the artist is Betty Gooby, '50-'59. I once had a sugar bowl in the same pattern, also on black with each small vertical line of colour bordered by a very fine line of a contrasting colour - very complex and delicate work for what is ultimately everyday kitchenware. It maybe that the cups are initial trials or pre- production pieces. They are probably very rare as they are the only pieces I have seen in that '50's pattern since I had the bowl 10yrs ago. Its likely that they were too complex to put into largescale production.
