This is the topic that bought me to the site. I was doing a google search for Pear Tree as I have about a dozen pieces, including a variant of the pot above, and thought I'd have a look to see if there's much of it about, and maybe get some info on the pottery itself. I love the glazes on their pots, they're not only attractive but very tactile too.

Pear Tree Pottery (Sheffield) Empty Roy newmans work ptp

Post by pear tree pottery on June 2nd 2011, 12:00 pm

Pear tree pottery was a business established in early 1970s by my grandad Roy Newman.It was based in firbeck lane, laughton, nr dinnington, sheffield. Roy worked as a potter for 30 years employing his son paul who worked there nearly 20 years from leaving school.The building was an old chapel which has since been converted in to private residence.In the pottery itself there were around six kilns and a potters wheel,also an extensive display of the wide variety of pottery Roy and Paul made.They would also have visits where they would show people how to make pots and let them have a go and a giggle.They also designed and made plates for sunk collierys,anniversarys,weddings and churches ect...The pottery stopped trading in the mid 90s when Roy retired.The P T P is the trademark of there work.Hope you find this usefull Richard...

@ Pear Tree Pottery (Richard)
On the wall behind the lamp in this picture...
Pear Tree Pottery (Sheffield) P2006110
......is a print of assorted pots. I was just wondering if they had any connection to your Granddad's studio?
Also, do you know which pots are by your Granddad and which are by his son (your Uncle, I assume)?

Sorry about the poor light; trust it to throw down the minute I got the camera out.
My favourite PTP piece (honest, it's not as dull as the lighting makes it appear);

Pear Tree Pottery (Sheffield) Empty Studio pot with DP mark - id?

Post by NaomiM on June 21st 2012, 12:03 am

I've seen a couple of pots with this mark but I still haven't been able to identify the maker. Anyone recognise it?
Lovely drip glaze.

Interesting. You see very little studio pottery with a stamp on. Yet this looks like studio. Perhaps a manufacturer trying to jump on the studio potter in the 70's? Could that mark have other connotations? A cross with a circle in the bottom right hand quadrant, all within a circle. Is there some sort of symbolism there? Or am I reading too much into it? Apart from the mystery mark, its a fairly standard piece.

Yes, typical of 60s-70s studio pottery. Maybe Northern European
