When I interviewed George Scatchard about who had studied under him or assisted him, a familiar name arose: Sally Duval. I knew Sally for two reasons. I had purchased a set of coffee mugs done by her back in the late 1970s and which I use everyday to this day. Secondly, I taught her sons while at Essex High School.


Once I knew that she had assisted George and learned many of his techniques, I could see his influences in her work such as in this 4 1/2 inch tall blue honey pot. Its construction is much like a coffee mug or wine goblet.


It is signed on the base with her first name only: Sally. Isn't it striking?  With a height of 3 1/2 inches and a top opening of 2 1/2 inches, this small but well-proportioned coffee mug was made by David Gil, in his Cooperative Design years, most likely 1948-1960. 


This green glaze has undertones of different shades and a finely grained texture.  The unglazed bottom is marked with the incised cooperative design, bennington, vermont mark in a rectangle though it is a faint impression on this mug, dating it to the 1960-1961 time period. 


It is in excellent condiiton and a good example of a David Gil design.

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 light blue glaze.  It is marked with the incised initials MKP and Bristol, VT.  Why not enjoy your tea or coffee from this hand-thrown beautifully glazed handleless mug or perhaps small vase created by one of the pioneers of the Midcentury 20th century Vermont Studio Potters movement?


This 3 1/2 inch tall handleless mug was created by renowned Vermont Midcentury studio potter George Scatchard. It has a deep cobalt blue interior glaze and his trademark brown glaze with 7 blue triangles on its exterior. 


It is signed with his characteristic G. Scatchard incised signature.


He was 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.

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.

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 #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. 


Condition is excellent -- no chips, cracks, nicks, flakes, stains or other damage / problems.  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.

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.

This Georges Scatchard  4 3/4 inch handled jug is a good example of the work that Scatchard has been doing since the 1960s. 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.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this 10 1/2 inch diameter bowl is the largest of the three sizes he made in this piecrust bowl form.

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 outside of the goblet is done in tans and beiges and one can see both inclusions and the horizontal rings from the throwing.

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.

 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. 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. This early black leopard glaze is stunning. It is heavily mottled and covers the entire vase inside and outside except the base. The vase is in excellent condition. A very interesting shape and glaze combo by Stanley Ballard.

This is one of three patterns in the Animal Line. Along with the rooster/hen, there is Horse and Fish.
