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.

Recently I found this Lex Dawson Coffee Pot.
Marked twice with his early stamp that we dont have in gallery yet.
It has groggy clay & cracks & bumps are all over breaking out of the clay.. cat

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.

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.

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.

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.
