Hi, first of all I would start this thread because I was taking over another members. Sorry to dantheman I got carried away Surrender

Anyway has anybody got any more information about the potters mentioned in the topic title? Andrea King and John Bradley, Newcastle Opon Tyne
I have got a mug made by them! and was unable to id it until I found the same mark on another forum. So far I have the names and the date they ceased potting which was 2002. If you do not have any info.! Maybe you have a piece with the same mark A leaping Fish? If so I would love to see your images ...please.
Here is my mug complete with marks

Hi Terrypotter,
this is my work! how lovely to see that some of it still survives. It has been a long time now since we stopped potting ourselves but we have recently brought our kiln back into action mentoring a recent graduate from Sunderland Glass and Ceramics course in establishing his career as a potter, which is lovely, the passion for ceramics has never died but life took a few new turns and I regard myself as 'lapsed' which gives me the opportunity to return to making if I feel the desire in the future. John is now a man of leisure (retired). What is it you are interested in knopwing about us / our work?

Modern studio pottery teapot, ID help please?

Hello- I bought this great tea-pot today in my local 2nd hand shop, and I'm very curious about who, where and when it was made - It is large - about a litre at least- the incised rings are off-set to each other, not equip-distant, and the broad blue brush-strokes are placed between broad whitish brush-strokes- they're hard to see in this awful light. Handles to the pot and lid are like caterpillars! - it's great! I cannot make out the makers mark at all - Grateful for any ideas?. Thanks.

Oops! sorry, new to this and don't know my way around yet.

Here is a closer pic of the mark -its a bit obliterated by kiln-cones or something, which doesn't help.

Thank you! Brilliant - I love knowing the names behind the work. I haven't been able to find out much more by Googling - you'll know what I got, as I think it's from members here - just one beautiful mug, but what a great response to it, from the potter herself! I hope they'll un-retire and get going again, I'd love to be able to get more of their work.
Here's a slightly better daylight photo, just to add to the record.

Does that mean I can send her a message through this forum? I'd love her to know how much I like this piece of work.
I'm new to internet forums - I'll just go explore!

Meanwhile, in the same shop I also bought a little dragon..... Happy

Couple of mugs, with fish mark below the handle.
Lovely salt glaze. Luminous, even.
