Ray Finch the grand old man of Winchcombe Pottery
has died at the age of 97. Ray was taken on as a student by Michael
Cardew way back in 1935 and worked at Winchcombe for the rest of his
life. He was a inspiration to potters and collectors alike.
I met Ray
on a few occasions, I remember showing him the slipware mug in the
image below, he confirmed it as his and reminisced about his old
slipware days, I will always treasure that memory.
