The blue band around the widest part of the vase is a drip glaze. The body of the vase is actually a very pale green glaze.

They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. They made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US by Raymore and sold in fine department stores.


This is #1463 and was called Crown Safety Ashtray in the 1964 catalogue. It measures 4 1/2 inches wide and stands 2 1/4 inches tall to the top of the crowns. This was produced in four colors: White, Turquoise, Charcoal or Brown. This is the charcoal color. It is marked with the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont rectangle mark which is a transitional mark used from 1960 to perhaps 1961.  However this shape was still shown in the 1970-1971 catalog and I don't know if they changed the marks or kept the transitional mark on this piece.

How iconic can you get for your daily java mug! Here you go. This handled mug was made by the Onion River Pottery in South Burlington Vermont. The company's products are easy to find around Vermont but its history was much more difficult to locate.

After WWII, Frank W. Goss (1921-2011) and his wife Marjorie Major started a pottery named Contemporary Ceramics, perhaps later to be named Goss Pottery, then around 1970 renamed Onion River Pottery. Steven F. Goss was apparently also involved with the founding of the pottery. I am not clear on the relationship between these two men. It operated in various locations around Vermont: New Haven, Middleburg, Winooski, and South Burlington. I am not exactly clear on the relationship between Goss and Onion River except that its products are identical. I assume Goss Pottery was an earlier name of the Onion River Pottery Company.

The pottery used many characteristic bas-relief patterns impressed on a red clay form and exposed through a grey speckled slip glaze.

This coffee mug features the mountains and trees of the "Green Mountain State". It is signed with the words ONION RIVER POTTERY SO. BURLINGTON VT inside an onion shape. Winooski, one of the locations for this pottery, derives its name from an Abenaki word meaning "wild onion".It is in excellent condition.  Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960), who graduated from Alfred University in 1939 and started his studio in the Burlington area in 1945, this #10 signed Ballard vase is a standard shape but done in one of his mottled glazes, this one being pink and black. The vase is glazed both on the outside and the inside in this mottled glaze.


The #10 shape vase stands10 1/8 inches tall and is 5 1/4 inches wide at top. The bottom tapers to a 3 1/2 inches square base. It is signed with Mark #10, putting it in the 1948-1956 time period in my opinion. 


The vase is in excellent condition. Add it to your American Art Pottery collection or Ballard collection today.  Ted Scatchard, along with his more prolific brother George, was profiled in the 1967 Spring issue of Vermont Life on pages 38-42. He graduated from Antioch College in 1962


He started from a converted horsebarn with his brother George in 1962, George having started producing in 1960. Both brothers used a "single firing" method.


According to the Vermont Life article on page 42, Ted "was the only New Englander to receive a merit award for three items (all pottery) entered in the 1965-1966 New England Craft Council's exhibition for new and emerging craftsmen. 


This four inch tall hand thrown vase features the standard brown gray glaze used by both Ted and George. He created three dots on the sides of vase by removing the glaze to reveal the chocolate brown unglazed surface below. 


The vase is in excellent condition. It is signed on the bottom with an incised signature: Ted Scatchard.

This handled lug soup was created by George Scatchard. It stands 2 3/4 inches tall and measures 6 inches across from the tip of the lug handle to the other rim.

Add it to your American Studio pottery collection today.  David Gil Coop Design 6 1/8 inch round x 3/4 inch deep plate with rough unglazed bottom and yellow tinted outside rim, signed with incised signature 'David Gil' and 'bennington'. The deeply incised mark and the dark base color of the clay seen on the back of the plate as well as the orange tinted rim place this plate into the early period for this 1240 shape series. Both the bottom and the bottom of the side rim are unglazed. 


The pattern of this plate is a very abstract one, depicting a Bull or Steer with horns. I have nicknamed this piece Lascaux Bull as it reminds me of the cave paintings there. In my 2013 interview with Gloria Gil, she stated that David Gil was inspired by the discovery of the Lascaux caves in France in 1940 and opened to the public in 1948, the same year David graduated from Alfred University and started Cooperative Designin Bennington Vermont.


The body is done in a simple line technique of blue and black. The eye is turquoise blue and there are two brown spots on the side of the animal. What is interesting about the brown spots is that you can also see hints of the turquoise blue color coming through them. The glaze over this must be a type of semi-matte glaze as the colors are muted.


This is a hard to find variation of this early period 1240 shape.


In addition to the standard early period david gil bennington signature, it also shows the outline of the original Raymor paper label which was placed right over the bennington signature. Excellent condition.  It was part of the Raymor line. Many of these early period 1240 plates are still found with an intact Raymor label or the shadow of the sticker. Gloria Gil told me that Raymor approached them in 1953. Their association with Raymor last 20 years until 1973.


David Gil started producing work in Bennington Vermont in 1948. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters, then into the Bennington Potters company we have known since 1960 and still very much active today.


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced.  Prior to changing the name to Bennington Potters around 1960, David Gil's company was known as Cooperative Design. There, he and other Alfred designers fashioned all sorts of interesting Mid-Century items. Having trained at Alfred University, Gil came to Bennington in 1948. His designs are included in many Mid-Century exhibits and catalogues. 


This is the #1342 rimmed covered casserole with metal bail handle. It is done in an early brown glaze. It measures 10 1/4 inches across x 7 inches wide. It has a lid which features a metal handle which was formed into the pottery. . It would make a great  baking and/or serving dish as. It's a good-sized practical dish. It would look great with your McCobb or Eames buffet.


The casserole bottom is marked 1342. The lid is marked 1342 C, most likely the C refers to it being the cover. It is in very good vintage condition. It was used to bake and cook in but there is no damage. There is a heat check on the bottom but that was there when it was made.  It  was there when I bought it and will be there when you buy it. I describe my items accurately. 


It is signed with the circular 1964-1968 mark which includes the words Bennington Potters.

Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there while these influential teachers were part of the faculty: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. Katherine Nelson.


This signed and numbered #19 vase stands 5 5/8 inches tall. The glaze is a rich chocolate brown. Out of the 600+ pieces in my collection, I only own 5-6 pieces in this glaze.  In my opinion, this is a vase that was not glazed with an overglaze. There is no "chocolate brown band" at the bottom of the sides. The glaze is extremely mottled, particularly in the inside. 


Based on this mark I think it is closer to the 1948 date when Ballard started to use incised shape numbers as part of the bottom mark. 


This vase is in excellent vintage condition.

This is #1460 / #1460T and was called Crown Safety Ashtray in the 1964 catalogue. It is a two part design consisting of an underbowl that can be used separately and a top cover with the safety edge. The bowl measures 5 1/4 inches wide and stands 2 1/2 inches tall to the top of the rim.  The top crown sits on top of the bowl when it is used as an ashtray. 


This was produced in four colors:  White, Turquoise, Charcoal or Brown.  This is the iconic Turquoise  color. It is marked with the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont rectangle mark which is a transitional mark used from 1960 to perhaps 1964.  


David Gil, trained at Alfred University and profiled in the Winter 1961 issue of Vermont Life, started Bennington Potters in 1948 in Bennington, VT right after WWII.

It is from the the post-1960 time period when Gil began to use the words Bennington Potters on pieces after having used a transition mark which included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


This fluted 9 5/8 inch diameter plate was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as B 1650 and titled "Greek Head", an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. Its original 1964 price was $5.00.


It features a very stylized Head with a stylized beard done orange. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite speckled with two shades of white. The eyes of the head have been painted green. and an orange stain used on the beard.


This is a confirmed David Gil design. It was confirmed by Gloria Gil in May 2012.


The back of the plate/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It is signed 1651 and has the spark mark on the forearm. I would guess it is from the 1960-1962 period. It is in excellent condition.

Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard who worked in the Burlington area, this is an unusual shape for Ballard. It carries the shape number 24. The glaze is a green glaze which shows some of the chocolate brown underglaze at the rim. It is from his later period as there is almost no chocolate brown showing on the bottom rim of the vase. It is in excellent shape.

Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard who worked in the Burlington area, this 10 inch long low planter was a typical shape of the 1950s, used to start bulbs or as a base for flower arranging or ikebana arrangements. It is in his earlier light green glaze. 


This piece carries the shape number 27 I think but the impression is a little bit unclear. It is in excellent condition and is from Ballard's middle production period as there is a band of chocolate brown underglaze visible at the bottom rim where it meets the bottom of the sides of the bowl.

The inside of the jug is a dark blue glaze. The outside resembles his standard glaze for which he is known but if you look closely there are some subtle undertones of purple in a few places. His handle is perhaps one of his trademark designs.


This piece is signed on the bottom G. Scatchard and the year 200?.  There is some damage to the bottom of the piece. I don't know if it was dropped or was a second.  It does not affect how the jug sits on a flat surface.


The outside of the goblet is done in a mottled blue glaze and one can see both inclusions and the horizontal rings from the throwing. A beautiful piece. 


His studio is located in Underhill, Vermont but he is currently no longer producing work as he recently sold his lamp business; he no longer has an open shop.


Georges Scatchard started from a converted horsebarn with his brother Ted in 1960.

This divided relish dish designed by Yusuke Aida for Bennington Potters measures 9 1/2 inches across in length x 6 5/8 inches across and is shaped with twin sectoins.

It  features six stylized daisies.  The stems, leaves, and petals are incised. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite high gloss with some mottling in the glaze giving the color depth.  The steams and leaves have been accented in a dark olive green and the flowers are accented in dark brown.


I believe that this series of ashtrays 1650-1655 was designed by David Gil's first wife Gloria Gil, who also designed the 1553 Fighting Cock tile. and perhaps all the tiles in that series.


The back of the plate/plaque is missing the wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery.  It is signed 1653 and has the spark mark on the forearm.  I would guess it is from the 1960-1964 period. It is in excellent condition.

There, he and other Alfred designers fashioned all sorts of interesting Mid-Century items. Having trained at Alfred University, Gil came to Bennington in 1948. His designs are included in many Mid-Century exhibits and catalogues. 


This is the #1342 rimmed casserole bottom.  It is done in an early very dark steel gray glaze.  It measures 10 1/4 inches across x 7 inches wide.  It originally had a lid which features a metal handle which was formed into the pottery. This is just the bottom. It would make a great serving dish as is. It's a good-sized practical dish.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this shape seems to be one of the early ones by Ballard which didn't make it to the later production period.


 The vase measures 5 1/2 inches high x 5 1/4 inches wide. The opening is 4 1/4 inches long x 2 3/8 inches wide. Each one I own either has no shape number or is number 21 with the early chocolate brown band around the bottom dating it from his middle period of production. This vase carries both the shape number and the Ballard signature but they are very faint. 


The chocolate underglaze can be seen at the top, the inside, and underneath the mottling on the body. This early white glaze is stunning. The glaze is a standard early shade of blue he used often. The vase is in excellent condition.

It stands 2 1/2 inches tall and is 2 5/8 inches square at the top. It is signed on the bottom with the standard incised S. Ballard  VERMONT signature and the shape number 40.


The glaze on this small piece is a standard Ballard green glaze with yellow undertones with the chocolate brown underglaze visible at the top rim and at the very bottom of the base. This dates this piece to Ballard's middle production period.  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C.

Excellent condition.  Made by the Muncie Pottery Company of Muncie Indiana, this #404 6 inch tall vase in the desirable matte white over rose glaze is marked with the MUNCIE incised mark as well as the IA mark which is identical to the one shown on page 33 of the 1999 Muncie Pottery book by Jon Rans and Marck Eckelman.

Kennedy  or Paul T. Kennedy, brothers who formed Green Mountain Wood Crafters in Charlotte Vermont in 1937 and worked there until a fire in 1942. 


Post WWII, they were located in Bristol Vermont until 1959. They moved into the former Sheffield Farms building on Route 22A in Vergennes in 1960, adding a gift shop where tourists were able to watch the wood ware being made.  From 1960-1980 they had several retail locations in Florida, New York, New Hampshire but the most successful was in downtown Burlington at the corner of College and Church street, now Sweetwater's restaurant since 1980, though the Kennedy family still owns the building. 



The earliest piece I have heard of is a pitcher dated 1947. I do not yet know when the pottery stopped operating. I now know that whichever brother was not involved with the wooden ware Vergennes operation opened a store in New Haven, VT which was operating as late as 1971 when an acquaintance's grandmother stopped and bought some pottery marked as Pittsfield Potters there.


In excellent condition, it is glazed in a multi-hued green-blue glaze. The base clay appears to be a red eartheware. It is marked with the incised initials MKP and Bristol, VT.

Standing 4 1/4 inches tall x 3 1/2 inches wide, this Vermont contemporary deepy incised decorated covered jar was made by Patrick Kennedy of Newark Vermont as his label on the bottom clearly states.  He also has a stamped symbol which I can see now is a conjoined P and K to form his stamp.  


This is a covered jar glazed on the inside but left rough on the outside.  The deep chocolate brown layer can be seen through the cameo cuttings on the outside layer. Very interesting. I could find little on the artist. If you have any information, please pass it along.

The rim has three holes for hanging. Ah, remember macramé!! There are another three drainage holes in the bottom of the planter which would carry excess water to the attached underplate. The inside rings clearly on this hand thrown piece as well as the body of the stoneware itself and where the drip glaze was place. You can see all the ridges of the hand thrown object. The outside of the goblet is done in tans and beiges and one can see both inclusions and the horizontal rings from the throwing. The overglaze on this piece is done in shades of blues and greens and has an abstract design. The plnater is signed on the unglazed bottom G. SCATCHARD. A beautiful early piece. 


Currently located in Underhill, Vermont, Georges Scatchard started from a converted horsebarn with his brother Ted in 1960. An article about the two Scatchard brothers and their ceramics was published in the 1967 Spring issue of Vermont Life on pages 38-42. According to the article, he was the only New Englander to receive a merit award for three items (all pottery) entered in the 1965-1966 New England Craft Council's exhibition for new and emerging craftsmen.


His current website, gslamps.com, shows his current production and gives a brief history of his work.  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It is from the pre-1960 time period when Gil used only the words Design Cooperative, or in this case only the letters CO OP around the hand mark.


David Gil Coop Design #1202 7 inch teardrop French horn player in signature teal glaze, with the COOP Man/hand logo. rough unglazed rim. There is still a shadow that can be seen of the Raymor paper label on bottom which states: MODERN in the Tradition of Good Taste: Raymor, designed by David Gil for Cooperative Design. The label is present on a few of the other four designs in this teardrop series. Excellent condition.



I recently learned that when Gil decided to mark his works with shape numbers, he started with the number 1300. However, if an earlier design was to remain in production, they marked it with a number starting with 1200. This explains the numbering and mark on the transition pieces.


They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"

The chocolate underglaze cannot easily  be seen at the top and underneath the mottling on the body as the leopard skin overglaze extends to the bottom of the vase.

I almost think it is a piece which only has the underglaze and is missing the top glaze. It is a great example of Ballard's early work. It is in excellent condition.


I have another example of this shape which has the date 1945 on it. This vase has the recessed base and the S. Ballard in relief signature without the word Vermont which would come later. It is not dated but shows the heavy cylindrical rings of being hand thrown I think. It is most likely from either 1945 or 1946.
