1997

A wonderful example of a tin glazed eathenware pottery bowl from the Aldermaston Pottery established in 1955 and led throughout its existence until 2006 by the celebrated potter Alan  Caiger-Smith MBE (1930-2020).  Painted to the inner bowl with the inscription Love & Live Happy, around a central rose stem and flower head, the exterior a band of stylised flowers and foliage in mixed colours on a tine glaze base. Signed and dated on the base.

One of a pair, priced individually,  but we'll be happy to offer as a pair if clients wish.

Excellent overall condition, just the smallest of glaze chips evident on the underside outer rim, as shown in the image gallery below.

Alan Caiger-Smith employed a number of assistant potters throughout the potteries existance. This piece  signed and dated on the base 1997, made by Andrew Hazelden who joined Alan in 1984  from Art School and worked with him for 22 years, learning the difficult technique of tin glaze and reduction fired lustre earthenware, until  the pottery closed in 2006. Alan retired, Andrew has gone on to open his own Yarnton Pottery, which remains open today.
