Bryan Newman in 1982 at his pottery in Somerset
My sister Sasha and I are sorry to announce the death of our father, Bryan Newman. Here are some pictures of him, my late mother Julia Newman, and Dad’s pottery.
So sorry to hear this Kim
My condolences; I lost my own father not long ago. The pottery is wonderful.
Sorry to hear of his passing. He was one of my teachers at Camberwell, and I owe him a great deal for his guidance and encouragement. My condolences to you.
Sorry for your loss. Take care .
My sincere condolences. Such great work will undoubtedly be cherished by generations to come.
Such sad, sad news.
We’re so very lucky to be surrounded by so much of his work and he is such a presence in all of our homes.
Every time I sit and see the sublime wood carving he did for mum and dad recently I am stunned by his talent.
You and Sasha must be so very proud. I know dad has been hit quite hard at the loss of his dear old friend.
My memories of our times in Aller, riding Fancy with your mum, egg rolling at Easter, playing pool with your dad… are still so vivid after all these years.
Sorry for your loss x
Sorry for your loss, especially when you were about to leave for, or had already left for, Dublin.
I lost my father when I was only nine, sigh…
Hi Kim, So sorry for your loss. I have learned of your parent’s pottery only this past few weeks as I went to ask help from the southwest pottery association re the origin of a casserole pot I bought. It looked special so wanted to know where it came from. And weeks of search lead me to this article. My casserole looks like the teapot and the small vase in your pictures.
Hi Cathi – I’ve added a picture showing the maker’s mark of Aller Pottery – which looks a little like the A anarchy symbol. If your casserole has this, it’s one of Dad’s.
Hello my name is Allison. Recently I acquired a ceramic piece. I was curious how mr. Newman labeled his art? I can send pictures of what I have. To an email address if you’d like
The last picture shows Dad’s maker’s mark. It’s the A in a circle, a bit like the anarchy symbol, for Aller Pottery.
