I have previously written about the T G Green Channel Islands series by Judith Onions and Martin Hunt c1968. This now quite rare series consisted of 5 very bold designs with completely different designs, and one of them was SARK – which I have only ever come across in person once previously. Each of the series was made in several colours – Honey, Grey, Blue, Green, Brown and Orange.
I recently found 2 Sark pieces picture below in the first 2 photographs – in the lovely honey and black colour. I love the deeply carved ridges on this design and the black banding which really sets the design off. Also quite beautiful is the finely textured chamotte style clay which shows through the semi transparent honey coloured glaze.
I had never seen this design in other colours until I was searching the web and found a Sark variation in grey on Etsy, also pictured below. The white banding detail on this version against the grey glaze makes for a really timeless yet contemporary design I think.
