This an email from Paul .
The clay body was a blend of mine which I believe from memory (no
records of this period are to hand currently as all in storage)was equal
parts China Clay: Ball Clay : Molochite (which if you don't know is a
very pure white firing grog, the flecks of which are very prominent in
your piece and give the texture to the surface). The glaze is high in
Barium Carbonate which gives the strong purple blue and other colours to
in combination with Copper Oxide. Again no records to hand but I believe
this was probably made in the early 1990's.

Best wishes

Just thought of a couple of extra thing you may find interesting. The
pot is made in two parts, main body and foot which would have been
joined. The form was partly inspired by the work of Derek Davis (Artist
potter from Arundel, Sussex) The use of the stamp from Japanese potters
on the "front" influenced from Colin Pearson's work. The painted
signature on the base again inspired by Derek Davis. I long ago gave up
clumsy attempts at painting my signature it is now always incised; if
you haven't already seen them there are some good pictures of this on
the Oxford Ceramics web site.

best wishes

Peter

Modernist? shallow footed bowl, marked and signed peter wills

Post by kitling on November 30th 2013, 2:54 am

Hello!
I was wondering if you knowledgeable people could possibly identify this shallow footed bowl? It is marked and signed. To my untutored eyes, it reminded me a little bit of the shallow footed bowls of Lucie Rie. (Though obviously I know it's not hers - just that it reminded me a bit of them in shape and colouring.) Any hints or info would be v.much appreciated. It belongs to a friend and I'm curious. Photos of marks below.

Thanks in advance!
Kit

Thanks guys - yes it is a pity about the cracks. I'll let my friend's family know that it's Peter Wills. It was in the spare bedroom where I was sleeping and I was rather taken by it but it was a present from years ago and they couldn't remember who it was by.

I've been looking at his other stuff just now and they're lovely. I covet the bright turquoise ones here: http://www.bathcontemporary.com/ceramicists/details/peter-wills/

Also, sorry I thought the thumbnails were linked to a bigger picture. Thanks styleinvasion for reposting them.

Further to earlier posts, he is still making, I commissioned this off him at the end of last year and he could not have been nicer, do buy his work, he deserves our support and the work absolutely merits it! Oxford Ceramics and Bath Contemporary are his main stockists.

This is one we have had for a while. and which takes pride of place in the hall. That vivid blue band is simply gorgeous. As Dan said those years ago, A Very talented potter. This is one of the largest if his we have seen, 33 cms diameter, 18 cms high.It feels as though it might be made of the type of grog mixture that Peter Wills describes  in his e-mail.
