Pictured on the right of this image is a jar by Michael Cardew. The jar shows Cardew's growing confidence and skill in his early years as an independent potter. It is an imposing, well-proportioned form and perhaps one of the earliest large pots that he made at his pottery in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. The brushed slip decoration is experimental without being tentative or hesitant, its vigour and scale fully appropriate to a piece of this size.
