Another of the Dartmouth Park Pottery potters, Gregory Tingay was taught at the Buckfast Abbey Pottery (as Brother Alexander) by Mary Gibson-Horrocks who had previously worked with Bernard Leach. I'm told that she took many of the photographs of Leach at his wheel.

This is a small vase of his with a geometric scraffitto pattern. I think his work is highly original. Beautiful carved base.
