Mugs: Stichbury, Smisek, Engelhard, Firth, Brickell, Schiessel, Truebridge, ADRIAN COTTER

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Thu 12 Jun - 14:52

When I started my CL castware four-digit project I thought maybe I should also have representative mug examples from other commercial potters from around the same time, then, as I found the direction of my collection homing in on coffee mugs, I started on Titian mugs, then early Crown Lynn mug shapes.

As it was the studio potters that were giving the commercial potteries models and ideas for their wares I thought I really should have some examples of studio pottery mugs too.

These three mugs, all about 90mm high are my starting point.

___Peter Stichbury_______Mirek Smisek________Simon Engelhard______

When I get the opportunity I will visit my friend Simon Lee-Johnson and photograph some of the stunning pieces given to his father Eric Lee-Johnson (or traded for paintings or drawing) by the potters. He has a set of black Barry Brickell mugs which could be the model for the shape of Mark Cleverley's tall coffee set mugs, but closer in size to the three above.

Well I thought the Brickell were black but it must have been the light as they look like Tenmoku now: http://www.newzealandpottery.net/t5286-barry-brickell-mugs-and-coffee-pot#19788

Simon and his wife Karen both loved my Engelhard mug. It looked weirdly unbalanced in the auction pic but it looks great up close.

Recently added an Ian Firth and a Barry Brickell. Photos later.

Have added Bill Schiessel, Mike Truebridge, and others I have yet to identify.

Some catch-up pics.

Barry Brickell and Mike Truebridge.

BB 91mm H, MT 96mm H

The mark on the Brickell does not photo well and the Truebridge is so obviously his work.

Ian Firth x 2.

94mm H, 93mm H

---------------------

I was checking through my handpotteds last night and thought I should check out this mark that looked like an A and either a G or C. Found it:

Adrian Cotter.

83mm H, clear mark AC overlapped

Can anyone tell me when this might date from?

Here's my handpotted mugs so far (well those that will fit in a tidy montage).
I am expecting one by Don Thornley to arrive shortly too. When that gets here I can make a new 6 x 6 montage including also an unmarked mug, a Beach cup/mug, and CL coronation loving cup (#340).

My photo file for handpotted mugs now has nearly 700 images, at least 600 of which will be unique photos of mugs currently in my collection, or which I have given away.

Here are a couple more by ADRIAN COTTER that I put away and forgot about. There is slight damage that wasn't described in the trademe listing and the seller refunded including post.

Adrian Cotter, marked
