Sidney Tustin, Winchcombe Pottery Egg Baker


Reference: 03172

Description: A delightful studio pottery egg baker by the potter Sidney Tustin (1913-2005), one of the most prolific potters ever, made during his 51 years at Winchcombe Pottery. This egg baker uses the green glaze so typical of Winchcombe but with a very modern design. Impressed Sidney Tustin & Winchcombe marks to base.

Dimensions: incl. handle 13cm (5")

Additional Information: Sidney Tustin joined Michael Cardew and Elijah Comfort at Winchcombe Pottery in 1927 when he was thirteen years old. Sidney Tustin potted at Winchcombe for fifty-one years. He retired in 1978 having made over a million pots. His work is of excellent quality, and he must be considered the backbone, and certainly a star, of Winchcombe Pottery. Michael Cardew had started Winchcombe Pottery, in 1926, when he left St Ives, having been a student, a potter and a friend to Bernard Leach, and was joined by Elijah Comfort, the former chief thrower at Beckett's Pottery, the former occupiers of the Winchcombe premises. In 1939 Ray Finch took over the management of Winchcombe while Cardew went back to Cornwall to set up another pottery at Wenford Bridge. After the war, Cardew's hands were full - with his new pottery, and work in Africa - and he sold the Winchcombe to Ray Finch. Throughout the post-war years,Winchcombe enjoyed the company of many potters - notably Colin Pearson in 1953/4, John Solly in 1951, John Leach in 1959/60, Dan Finnegan in 1978. Mike Finch has run the pottery since 1979.
