Lex Dawson

Post  Ev on Tue 15 Jun - 15:59

I really enjoy Lex Dawson's work.
There is a sense of unrestrained freedom about his work.
This piece was made by him and I won it in an auction in the 1970's and glazed it.



The Asian characters on the front of the vase are actually Lex's name and mark Very Happy

Two mugs and beaker (tea bowl?) by Lex Dawson

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Wed 17 Feb - 10:35

Bit of a catchup here.
I bought the Potters Arms mug from Hamish on tm and was given the other two pieces by Marcus, a few months back.

11.5cm H x 11 OD top, Lex mark

The picture shows Peter Lange, Nicky Jolly, and Lex.
When I showed this pic to Nicky she told me she did not recognise it but enjoyed the blast from the past.

8.5cm H x 7.7 OD top

Those are both lovely jars Kat, but I didn't know that Lex had an X mark ....?
It looks like a 5 pointed star stamp from here ...?

Also as the lids are constructed differently I would be inclined to think that they are made by different potters.

Very saddened to hear that Lex Dawson has moved on to Potters' Heaven.  I knew he hadn't been too well, but it's still a shock to learn that he has gone.  So pleased that I have some of his work that I have always treasured.

Grogged stoneware Lex Dawson mug

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sat 1 Apr - 16:26

I recognised this as something special but could not remember whose mark it is.


I like all my Lex mugs, and they are all so different.
But this is my new favourite.
