23cm egg.

I've been meaning to put this on for a while, I've had it for at least 10 years. I'm surprised not to have seen more of them. I emailed David Worthty about it back in 2011 and got this reply:

"Yes I can confirm that the piece you have does indeed come from the  Crich Pottery studio, we called them  variously Pebbles/Eggs and where part of a range that Diana created around 1997 with a totally new colourway/ decorative style  named Lifeforce. She signed them all with her initials DW. We had been approached by John Lewis to come up with something exclusive and so  Lifeforce was born and went on to become a bestseller!"

The decoration is typical of her work. Thankfully she's starting to move away from just browns. I have one of her mugs and love it.

Has she? It's very odd because for ages there were just the 'shades of brown and grey' pieces for sale (ebay, mostly), and then suddenly, in the past year or so, there's been a flood of more colourful stuff - hues of blues and reds and yellows. Maybe someone's been stockpiling them?

I've been twisting these pots round and round and still can't decide which way up this should read. Wondering if anyone here can enlighten me. Thanks.

No mention of her in the Denby book, was she just a decorator?

In response to this post:

https://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t14220-does-anyone-recognize-this-signature-please

I have a colour leaflet I got from the pottery, years ago, before it closed.
I guess I can't reproduce it on here, but it has some info on the colourways.
The leaflet mentions 8, but only has photographs of 7, so here goes.

BLUE / GREEN Blue/green/black
RAINBOW Light Blue/Dark Blue/Mauve
CORAL Red/Grey/Black
OATMEAL BROWN Beige/Dark Brown
HARVEST YELLOW Pale colours: Yellow/green/Grey
HEATHER Pale clours: Pink/Grey/Beige
AUTUMN RUST Beige/Brown on an Orange background.

I have only collected the rainbow so far, as it is by far the prettiest.

I don't see why not, so long as you include the attribution. You could upload a photo(s)

as far as I'm aware Industrial copyright, including promotional materials, lasted 25 years after the end of calendar year of the initial release - but they changed it recently so that it's no longer possible for copyright to be owned by a corporation, but by the individual creators, and with the standard lifetime +70 years copyright length, as with art, books, etc...

Thanks Dan
So that must mean all the vintage ad blogs on Flickr and Tumblr, and sites like

are all being a bit naughty, or are just ignorant of the regs.

possibly but in our case skay is legally responsible for all content posted on the forum so we have to be whiter than white so he doesn't fall foul of the law (even though he doesn't read the pottery posts)

A fellow Denby collector suggested that while at Denby pottery, Diana was known as
Diana Woodcock-Beckering, and returning to the Denby book, there is just the one
entry for her as the designer of the "Trees" pattern, c1970.
