Marianne de Trey. Vase. Hand-thrown porcelain. Personal piece. 23cm. Signed
Signed with her personal’deT’ mark. Decorated with wax-resist pattern inspired by textiles (she trained as a textile designer). Fired in small oil-fired kiln. De Trey founded the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and was active in the activities of the Craftsman potter’s Association, which took her to Greece, China, Thailand, the USA. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and extensively collected. Her modesty, quiet personality and her involvement, initially (during and after the war) in making domestic pottery alongside making her own personal work as part of her concern to make good pottery more widely available (and to earn a living during hard times), probably had adverse effects on her status among the ceramic establishment; placing her below her deserved place in the hierarchy of British studio pottery and its history. This is an outstanding example of British ceramics, of museum quality. The photos do not do justice to the subtle materiality of the work. A great opportunity to acquire a significant, but under-valued work by a highly accomplished British ceramic artist. Sent professionally packed using foam! The item “Marianne de Trey. Vase.
