Canadian-born Sally Dawson (born 1927) was a technically skilled potter who established her first London studio in 1962. Self-taught and initially working in earthenware, she began to make individual porcelain after many years in domestic stoneware. Her jars, teapots, boxes and bowls were simple and restrained, with quiet often crackle glazes, shapes perhaps enhanced by fluting and incising.
Her pots were essentially twentieth century reinterpretations of Far Eastern forms and surfaces. Crisply made and succinct, they were a very thoughtful and sensitive response to contemporary life and living.
