Neat bowl with a pattern around the outside, black swirl inside, and reddish/brown shiny glaze

The mark is like a bow, and Kelly Blackburn was the only one I could find that was close

Just had to have this, whatever it is. Gloriously glazed

It has the bow mark again too. It's kind of a pot-bellied mug, but quite large.

You know this bow niggles me, as it only has 2 lines going downward, and the mark in the book has three, being the centre of the 2 R's.

Ross Richards of Thackwood Pottery. Empty Ross Richards' Pot

Post  R L Pike on Sun 29 Nov - 0:10

Hi ... what a gorgeous, typical-Ross-Richards'-shape pot ... round, dumpy, "judder" pattern at the base, small, finger-hole ring at the top, lovely rounded rim.. lovely glaze .. R R personified!! Back-to-back R's for the signature. Jealous that you found this one!!

Ross Richards of Thackwood Pottery. Empty Do you still want photos??

Post  R L Pike on Sun 29 Nov - 11:33

Hi .. A friend of mine gave me one of Ross R's most recent pieces for my 70th .. it's beautiful .. shallow dish on a pedestal. Sad to think there won't be any more of his work.......

A long time ago, when we were discussing June Reay's work, you asked me for some photos of her pots.......... do you still want them? I can email them to your home but don't trust myself to wade through the rigmarole to post them on the potter's forum! I have quite a collection and would be happy to do some "group" shots.. Hope the email address I have for you is current ... something to do with a plumber?? Cheers....

Ross Richards of Thackwood Pottery. Empty Is this Ross Richards?

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sun 29 May - 15:00

Moksha has asked me to post his photos with some questions.

The NZ Potters site has a three-legged double-R mark for Ross Richards as shown above in a previous post. This varies from the two-legged double-R scissor or bow mark that has appeared here. This discrepancy has already given cause for comment.

Moksha's pot has a three-legged mark as seen on the NZ Potters site.

Can anyone tell us if Ross did use a three-legged mark?
Is this pot Ross Richards' work?
