I guess that's the Goldmark effect, which means that they are always cheaper secondhand.

Svend Bayer had some lovely tenmoku bowls for £50-75, which were reasonable value. But it really annoyed me that he didn't mark his pieces. Unless it's something iconic like his bird-decorated bowls, I want a mark.

I wish more British collectors would watch this and quit their bleating

in my experience British studio pottery collectors don't want to see the story of a pot's creation but instead want an unblemished,'perfect' example which tends to come from factory production

Horses for courses really.
The 'Gnarly Dudes' Svend Bayer,Nic Collins, Charles Bound and Co tend to go in for these very long-several days- wood firing. The effects so produced, warts and all, are part of the whole character of the piece.
But wood firing is only possible in rural areas.

I may be controversial but I also dislike potters who don't sign/mark their work. I find it arrogant. 'My pots stand by themselves'. Well I would say your average and commercial crap looks just like anyone else's commercial crap. It's like an a
artist not signing a painting. Or a band having a blank cover to every album. Sorry, but I like a good set of marks on a base, sometimes the base is better than the piece because of the inscription and marks.

Nic Collins signs the base if there's enough room

The base is signed - its very feint due to size of base and firing, but it is there!

A bit of frost on a big Nic Collins jar in my garden this morning.

Beauty SP, so he's firing them on the side so is this face the base? I'm assuming this is the most interesting side?

Yes, it was fired on its side and the shells were to stop it sticking to the kiln shelf. The opposite side to the shells has most of the ash from the wood used in the kiln and so some would find that more interesting.


It is 20 years old and, although it hasn't been in my garden all of that time, it has been outside since it was purchased from his solo Harlequin Gallery exhibition in March 1999.
