Title: Michael Cardew Lidded Bowl

Reference: 00782

Description: A Michael Cardew Lidded studio pottery bowl for Wenford Bridge Pottery, bowl and lid decorated in a brown glaze with fish decoration. MICHAEL CARDEW (1901-1983) was taught to throw pots by William Fishley Holland at Braunton, North Devon. Coming to the Leach Pottery in 1923 as its first student, he shared an interest in slipware with Bernard Leach and was greatly influenced by the pots of Shoji Hamada. After 3 years he left to re-found the derelict pottery at Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. At Winchcombe Pottery he was joined by Elijah Comfort, Sidney Tustin, and later by Charlie Tustin and Ray Finch. Cardew's ambition was to make pottery in the seventeenth century English slipware tradition, functional and affordable by ordinary people. In 1939 he left Winchcombe Pottery in the capable hands of Ray Finch, later selling the business to him in 1945, and set up a new pottery at Wenford Bridge. He also worked in Ghana in West Africa as an instructor, established and ran a pottery and training centre at Abuja and set up a pottery at Vuma on the Volta river. Cardew taught many potters who were later to achieve success in their own right, including Svend Bayer, Miranda Thomas, Mark Hewitt and Rupert Spira. Impressed Michael Cardew and Wenford Bridge marks.
