Guy Sydenham Jugs

I won these two amazing sculptural jugs at the Cottees Poole Pottery sale last weekend.  I like them so much that posting just one photo just wont do. The Jugs were one of a group of Guy Sydenham lots that had been entered into the sale by Guy's wife Joan Sydenham, so I guess, they had been part of their own collection from the time that Guy made them.  The glaze and carving is very similar to the Poole Pottery Atlantis ware that Guy developed, but these were made in his studio on Long Island in Poole Harbour.  Both jugs have an impressed GS Island mark with two duck feet just under the handles, which dates them to between 1960-1968 - I think.

These Jugs have also inspired a new page on my website
