Hi everyone pleased to meet you all this is my first post thankyou...
First off i never usually buy much studio ware but i fell for the design on the lid although its been in two pieces I would love to know a little about this item is it slipware? There is 3 seal marks to base a capital A what looks like a small p in a circular shape and a rabbit? Maybe somebody would know the mark. Would it be expensive to get the lid repaired ..
The jar is approx 6" tall and 41/4" wide just wondered if anybody knows anything about these jars?
Thanks for reading dan

Pantasaph Pottery (Middle mark)

The A is the potter and the animal is the date code.

I'd guess the potter may be Patrick Adamson (co-founder of the pottery), but this I am not sure about.

I would say that the lid was made then dipped in a whitish slip, then while leather hard, carved through the slip to reveal the red earthenware, hence producing the decoration.

Much like sgraffito and Pâte-sur-pâte decoration.

Yes, I'm sure that's how it was done. Also the screw thread for the lid is a sign of quality. I have only come across this in Winchcombe jars before.

I quite like it, what I'd call "Art Pottery" rather than "Studio Pottery".

I can see the De Morgan influence.

Not an area I know much about.

I think I can now date your Jar to 1975.

Large bowl, slip decorated with bird and foliage. JC monogram on base plus second backstamp.
My parents bought this in the 70s direct from the pottery - I recall it was the potter's favourite piece in the showroom at the time. But they can't remember who or where it came from aside from "Mid Wales or Cornwall".
Id?

Many thanks! Happy

Looked him up and he's now based at Blackhills, nr. Elgin, N. Scotland.

In the early 70s he founded Pantasaph Pottery in Clwyd, Wales (so my parents were right after all) with Patrick Adamson "making slipware which echoed medieval forms." (according to the University of Aberystwyth's ceramic collection & archive website).

Pantasaph Pottery, I think Patrick Adamson (the A) and the rabbit/hare is the year mark, but I can't remember what year that was, it think the year marks were based on Chinese Zodiac, So I assume it's 1975, unless they re-used them and it's 1987? (If he was still there at this time)

unless they re-used them and it's 1987?

John Christie said they didn't continue them because the stamps were time consuming to carve, so they stopped making them part way through the Chinese years


Found this snippet of bio about Patrick Adamson

"Patrick Adamson (born 1944). Patrick attended Bath Academy of Art in the 1960s and worked with Michael Leach and at C H Brannan’s before founding the Pantasaph Pottery in Clwyd with John Christie in the 1970s. He used slipware and raku to make functional wares."

Pantasaph Pottery (Wales) Empty Well-marked slipware - Pantasaph Pottery, Wales

Post by hercules brabazon on July 15th 2017, 12:37 pm

Nicely made slipware mug with Winchcombe-style wave decoration and honey-coloured glaze. No less than three seal marks: a silhouetted animal, perhaps a charging bull; a "W" in a rectangle; and, impressed sideways, a "P" in a circle surmounted by a cross.

The same shop also had three small bowls matching the mug,  impressed  with a different "W" (not a seal mark), and a plainer brown jug with the same marks as the mug.

Pantasaph Pottery. The animal stamp is the year mark, based on the Chinese calender - looks like 1979 year of the Goat - the W is one of the potters' marks.
