Goodness Marcus, don't apologise - I OUGHT to have known really, I just couldn't work it out. 

But I really should have got FT,  I suppose I was just thinking away from Dartington.

Hi Sue, no... me neither.... :'(

It would be great though if someone was going and could maybe print out the pic of the vase and see if anyone there could give a firm id.

This exhibition coincides with the release of Mark Hill and Eve Thrower's new book on Dartington so it might be worth waiting for the release of the book Lynne (I've got one on order).

No worries Lynne, you never know Mark might be along here before then anyway.

I don't know, poor chap, I expect he is chasing his tail, trying to get everything ready...

Hi All,
Just a quick one...it was indeed thought that this was probably Dartington when it was shot for the 'JMC' guide (nice acronym, Marcus!) in early 2005, but subsequent research has revealed it's not. It doesn't appear in the book Eve and I have produced, nor does it appear in any company literature I have seen. I know it's not of much positive help in identifying a definitive maker, but at least it's one more company to strike off the list!
All the best,
Mark
