Vintage Molly Attrill Isle Of Wight Potter Slipware Sgraffito Cow Design Jug. Probably from 1980s Condition is Used. Molly Attrill first trained as an apprentice with Michael Leach at Yelland Manor Potter, North Devon, and then at The West Surrey College of Art & Design, Farnham, under Henry Hammond (1974/77). After working as a journeyman thrower in studios in France and Canada, she set up her own pottery in 1982 in an old grain barn at Mersley Farm, Newchurch, Isle of Wight (now The Garlic Farm) where she worked exclusively in earthenware. In 2001 she was Highly Commended in the Country Living Enterprising Rural Women Awards.
In 2007 she moved to a new workshop on the farm as it was evolving into a popular family holiday attraction. In 2014 Molly moved her pottery to a workshop in St Lawrence which is part of a small complex of private studios rented to professional artists and makers. She continues to work in majolica and slip and also reduction stoneware and porcelain. A feature of her work is figurative decoration using her original drawings with techniques such as painting with oxides, wax resist and sgraffito.
Mollys work have been featured in a number of specialist publications including an important survey of 20th Century Decorative Tiles, published in the US, and A&C Blacks Ceramic Handbooks series, Maiolica by Daphne Carnegy.
