Being busy collecting doesn't leave very much time to update the Rob's Poole Pottery website, so all my new finds I'll post on this blog, and for the main site follow the links on the right.

Guy Sydenham Green Island Egg Cup
This salt glazed stoneware egg cup was thrown by Guy Sydenham during the time that he lived on Green Island in Poole Harbour (1968-88), with clay found on the island and sold at a craft shop in Corfe village.
Collecting is a slippery slope. It starts with the idea "I wouldn't mind one of those", but then one, quickly becomes two, and before you know it its a whole new collection. These pots made by Guy Sydenham are about the only thing at the moment that I'm collecting (there you go) that doesn't have a Poole Pottery mark.
