A stunning ceramic bottle vase by Derek Clarkson (1928–2013). The 'bottle' form is synonomous with Clarkson, along with the satin matt glaze and the cobalt/iron calligraphic brush decoration. The Japanese-inspired look to his pieces was shared by the 'father of British studio pottery' Bernard Leach in his St Ives workshop, and may have had some influence on Clarkson as a young student. This piece has his signature stamp 'DC' to the base.

Derek Clarkson trained at the Manchester College of Art, later to become Senior Lecturer in Ceramics at the Manchester School of Art. In 1965 his work was included in the Design Council's Craft Index. The V&A have pieces of his pottery in their collection.

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
