Looks like the auctioneers just lumped his stuff in with st ives stuff, the labelled stuff came out of mashiko with only the boxes they were in bearing a signature , he seems to only be thought of as a st.ives potter yet that was only 3 years out of his life .

Although the Yates owen & fournier book is very very helpful in IDing potters , I can't help feeling it would be better to break down into areas of the country rather than a broad spectrum , Ie Cornish Potters , or welsh /Scottish Etc , there's a book / books out there for someone .

Thats all good Ed, but when you are trying to ID a piece how would you know which area to look in? if you don't know who made then it follows that you most probably don't know where it was made.

So a studio pottery book would consist of areas sections . I know it's not perfect but some form of registration would be better than the crappy guesswork at the moment , christ louis hudson isn't even the book Por que ?

Old copies of the Ceramic Review are useful. Especially for potters who ceased before the Google era. There are lots of examples of potter's work as well as features on new CPA members and the marks they used. I once identified a piece by phoning a number in the classifieds from 1981!

If you have any duplicate issues ten pot, I would be happy to take them off your hands. I have about 20 old issues and I've looked them over so many times I know them off by heart!
