Salt glazed stoneware beaker - Roland Bottani Katrin Dechaud




A fine example of salt glaze firing, along with very controlled slip trail work.

It reminds me of Jane Hamlyn ... but the mark is not hers. Other good salt glaze potters such as Walter Keeler and Peter Starkey have their own inimitable styles ... and this is not one of theirs.

So I shall have to dig deeper ...

UPDATE 6/11/18

This beaker was made by Roland Bottani and Katrin Dechaud in the
pottery atelier that once belonged to Pierre Digan in La Borne France.
This partnership began in 1987.
