Michael Cardew. 1901-1983
This inscribed jug is an important example of Cardew’s early work while working with Bernard Leech in St. Ives. It can be dated to between 1923-26 as it has both Cardew’s stamp and the St. Ives stamp. This makes it an historically important piece. Cardew went on to re start the pottery at Winchcombe and subsequently Abuja, Nigeria before returning to Wenford Bridge.
Jug size 22.5 x 19 cm
