Michael Casson

Mick Casson (1925-2003) was one of the foremost studio potters of his generation. After the end of the Second World War at first he intended to be a painter but quickly formed a passion for ceramics, very much inspired by the ideas espoused by Bernard Leach. For twenty odd years Casson produced tableware and other functional ware such as teapots, mugs and casseroles. In the late Seventies he started to concentrate on individual pieces, focusing on the aesthetics of form and decoration. Mick Casson was also a highly respected teacher and sponsor of studio pottery. He was a leading member of the Craft Potters Association and in 1976 he presented the very successful BBC series The Craft of the Potter.

Lidded jar of globular form, 21 cm high. Chip missing from under the neck, see first photograph. The lid has been damaged and repaired, see photographs. The jar dates from the 1970s. It is a fine example of how shape and decoration work together to form a harmonious whole.
