Winchcombe Pottery - Page 3 Empty Don Jones, Winchcombe

Post by denbydump September 21st 2014, 12:23 pm

A large pair of stoneware vases, the necks are slightly different shapes though.
10 inches high, lovely ash glaze that shows up well in sunlight, maroon interior.

Does anyone recognise the potter's seal? Looks like JD ot DJ.

They are by Don Jones, who worked at the pottery from 1950 until 1971 but potted from 1958 onwards. I suspect they are from the end of his time there, as for much of the Sixties the policy was for pots to be anonymous. He potted at home after leaving Winchcombe.

As these two Don Jones pieces do not have the Winchcombe Pottery mark, shouldn't they really be in a separate Don Jones thread?

If you put Don Jones in the subheading it'll be searchable.

I tend to use the subheading when items are identified but no dedicated thread exists, if I then notice there are several pieces existing I create a thread and transfer all the data

Gotta agree with SP on this one, they are not Winchcombe Pottery.

Bit like putting John Malby's current pots in the Lowerdown Pottery thread, in my opinion.

However, I do think it's worth leaving a picture of his mark in this thread for referance, as it appears to be the same as the personal seal he used while at Winchcombe.

I guessed so too Davee, I have a couple of other unmarked terracotta pieces that
have similar decoration, and are probably from the same period.

Winchcombe Pottery - Page 3 Empty Ray Finch Marked Winchcombe 25cm Fruit Bowl

Post by stardust* July 15th 2015, 6:28 pm

I have this large Winchcombe bowl, about 25cm wide, which I have been told is by Ray Finch himself. The WP mark has a dot and is very angular. is this Ray Finch 1970's?
Also does anyone know why it has a split, would this be a mistake in production, would it affect the way the bowl is valued as a piece?
Sorry about the fuzzy stuff, it had a piece of felt firmly glued to the base when I bought it, and the glue is very stubborn to get off!

As for the crack, looks like a firing crack. May have been sold as s second or taken home by an assistant.

It's Ray's personal mark from the early 1970s.

The firing crack seems to have occurred in the biscuit firing i.e. before glazing. I suspect it was a faint hairline that wasn't noticed and it was glazed and then opened wider to be filled with glaze during the glaze firing.

Thought it might be 70's, thanks for that and also for explaining the crack, I can see where the glaze has sunk in now.
Still...all part of the history behind my fruit bowl. (I don't really use it..it's displayed safely on a shelf)

Well made pot, can it be by Simon Rich? The mark doesn’t look exactly the same.

It looks to me as if the base is Winchcombe Pottery but the lid is not the right lid.

If you look at the second image down the stoneware body of the lid looks slightly different to that of the base and the internal glaze of the lid is different to the base.

As they say when talking about furniture, it looks like a marriage.

I know the lid has no mark but it looks very like Leach Pottery to me.

The possible good news is that I think the lid is quite likely from a "mottled grey brown" Leach Pottery coffee pot. They did them in 3 different glazes but whenever I seem to look on that well known internet auction site there always seems to be someone trying to pass off a Leach Pottery coffee pot (without the lid) as a jug. So that's the rare piece of the coffee pot. All you need to do is find the more common pot part. Cheeky

So do keep it.

Hi
Assuming this is a piece of Winchcombe is it possible to identify the potter - maybe from the decoration? Grateful as ever for any thoughts
