Michael Cardew

This picture of Michael Cardew was taken in our workshop in 1968. The pots had been made at a demonstration in Napier and, as he was staying with us, he used our workshop to slip and decorate his work. We later fired all his pieces in our oil kiln using a papa rock glaze over the slip. The jug on the left is the one shown below which is now in my collection.


  1. I saw a very large Cardew bowl a month or two back, from the collection of Trevor Bayliss.
