A really rather enchanting bowl and lid from David Cleverly's Devon pottery. This vintage 1980's piece features a bowl and lid measuring approximately 14cm in diameter and 8cm high. The domed lid features two mice, one licking its whiskers and the other one munching on a treat. The bowl is stamped Cleverly on the base and features a vine twisting around its circumference. In really good condition with minor crazing on the mice that can only be seen in close up.
About David Cleverly
David Cleverly was born and spent his formative years in the seaside town of Hastings, on the south coast of England. He attended Hastings School of Art, and then went on to study Fine Art [Painting] at Goldsmith’s College School of Art, London.
He moved to Devon over 30 years ago and started making pottery at Haytown. Here he first made a range of brown domestic earthenware with modelled sprigging. David began making larger figures in 1992. Now the figures have taken over almost completely, with a proliferation of historical and mythological characters and their creatures.
