favorite piece

Post by dantheman on July 9th 2011, 9:53 pm

Things are quiet here this weekend so here's a little game that we can all play.

Imagine your home is on fire and you can only save one piece of pottery,which one would it be?

for me the choice would be simple

for me, no question that it would be the Unicorn, although I'd be heartbroken to leave the enamelled jug behind

Happy A BEKO fridge, or careless smoking!

That's how they usually start. Snooty

Most of my collection is packed safely away in a brick built shed away from the house so it would be safe, but I would grab this piece from the house.

So what is it about people that means I (and Dan for that matter) am able to put myself in a situation where I can only take one thing and name it, yet others can't make that decision even though it's theoretical?
Human nature is strange.
also Dan....... I lied. Big Laughter

looks like a Wally Keeler mark...

Yeah, I'm 99% sure it's Walter Keeler, but I liked it that much before I knew who it was made by Excellent

I don't usually like to bother potters, because I hope there making more nice pots Excellent

seen a jug very much like this listed as a early WK item, and the mark fits, so it's enough for me to belive it is by him :)

Thanks for the info tho, good to know the maker of my fav mug is a nice chap.

It's generally the pots I like, if it's by a good maker it's just a bonus Excellent

But I do buy a very things i'm not so keen on thinking it's a mark I have seen, to research for fun.

Will need to thin down my collection before long, but the mug won't be going anywhere Most Excellent

If we could only save one piece of pottery, it would be this one for sentimental reasons and great glaze.

Not sure I could pick just one. It would depend on where abouts in the house I was and the fire was. And in reality, I'd grab several.
But one which would almost certainly be in my hot little hands, would be


But then, being stoneware it may well survive anyway.

Easy. Definitely one of these, depending on how high the flames are, either the small one in the foreground, or if I didn't need to run quite as fast, the big one in the background.Stig Lindberg Spektrum Leaf Lidded Gourd c1949 Gustavsberg, Sweden.
