This is a fantastic pottery chalice by Adam Dworski, Wye Pottery, Clyro, Powys, Wales circa 1960s.

A wonderful design by this renowned potter, an unusual chalice form, the bowl sitting on a pedestal base. Decorated with rich dark glazes with hints of green and jewel like prunts around the bowl and base, influenced by Byzantium and Classical styles.

Measures 14 x 12.5 x 12.5cm / 5.5 x 5 x 5in.

In excellent condition, no chips, cracks or crazing. Hand signed to the base 'Wye Clyro'.

Adam (Adaš) Dworski was born in 1917 in Rijeka, Croatia in 1954 he married and settled in Wales, starting Wye Pottery in Clyro, Powys 1956-98.

He is primarily known for his decorative work although domestic wares were also part of Wye Pottery's output. His use of rich colours on his flatter pieces, plaques and plates, which often gives them a 'jewelled' or 'stained glass' appearance contrasts with the subtle tonings of his more sculptural pieces. Although undoubtedly a very fine artist, he preferred to think of himself as a craftsman.

His work is sought-after and he holds the distinction of having been chosen to supply two pieces for Sir Basil Spence's new Coventry Cathedral, and a black Madonna for Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King.
