Jim Malone Ainstable Studio pottery Studio Pottery Ash-Glaze UnomiThis classic, deep-footed Unomi has a wood-ash glaze, pooling on the inside and over the external combed decoration. It is well-marked on the partly-glazed foot with 'A'(for Ainstable) and Jim Malone's initials 'JM'. This piece presents very well, but closer examination reveals a fine hair-line, which extends 4cm. down from the rim. The Unomi is nonetheless a lovely example of Jim Malone's art.

Janet Leach Studio Pottery St Ives Signed Large Bowl
This large and heavy ovoid-shaped bowl in red stoneware, probably coiled and thrown, is decorated with a pooling grey-green ash glaze, speckled with brown, and bears Janet Leach's own seal, the St. Ives stamp and 'England'. It is thought to date from the 1980's. The fully glazed interior is deliberately uneven in places,creating interesting shadows, while the exterior is unglazed, with only a few trails of slip. This characterful pot does have some wear: an old and possibly original chip on the base rim, two frits on the top rim, and a one cm. wide shallow chip below the top rim. Despite these defects, the bowl is a great example of the potter's work.
Size: Height 7cm., max.length 27cm., max.width 25.5cm., weight 1.5kg.
