The iron red glaze in vertical lines. Impressed potter's seal.

England, circa 1990s

Jelf cites his influences as Bernard Leach, Hamada Shoji and the Eastern School of pottery. All his pots are hand-thrown, his focus on pure form. His subtle stoneware glazes are made by him from locally sourced ingredients - woodash, limestone, clays. Decoration is kept to a minimum and pots are soda-fired in a gas kiln.

His work has been widely exhibited worldwide and is in major collections.
