Poole Olympus Range Pot

This is a hand-thrown, grey stonewear vase, shape no. 60A from the Olympus range designed by Ros Sommerfelt in 1971.  This one is sprayed with Black Panther glaze but they also came in stony colours too.  I'm sure these must have been quite labour intensive for the times and i guess relatively expensive.  I'm not sure you'd want more than one or two in any collection though.  
Black glazes unfortunately don't work very well with my efforts to create a black theme for the blog.
