my first piece of Swindell stoneware but definitely not my last,Geoffrey captures nature in a way that most potters could only dream of.

Geoffrey Swindell was born in Stoke on Trent and followed a line of many family members who worked in the pottery industry. He studied at the Royal College of Art in Stoke On Trent where he was taught by Hans Coper. In 1975 Swindell moved to Wales and was a lecturer at the Cardiff College of Art until 2003. His small scale ceramic forms require the fine texture and whiteness of porcelain while using a wide range of glazes to achieve textured, smooth and lustre finishes.

These are three pots in my collection. One has an S, one is unsigned and the other just has his pale green glazed bottom.

Not the best picture ever, but that's how I display them and personally I think they look great in front of the more classic studio pottery of Andrew Crouch (the items at the back).

I have one tiny Swindell piece but as you have all said his work is amazing, so much to look at, mine has the distinction of coming with a hand made alder wood pencil. The seller said it was made for a show so not many around as he didn't do many shows - not sure how true that was but I like a nice story. Porcelain. 7.3cm (height). Not seen the mark before - any comments?

As I understand it, this will have been indeed made for shows, such as "Art in Clay". He makes these as affordable pieces for people who like his work but don't wish to spend as much as his more expensive items cost. He does the same with the little glaze test vases that are also unsigned and have the spiral on the base. I believe they are only available from the fair's, so would not be for sale in a gallery or privately.

I think the 2 stars are his for his own reference, I think relating to the glaze used, but I'm not 100% sure about this.

Hope this helps Happy

P.S. I can highly recommend meeting the potter himself, he is a very nice and down to earth chap. Most Excellent

Here is a close up picture of the glaze, pictures just can't capture how nice the texture is.
