Ray Finch the grand old man of Winchcombe Pottery has died at the age of 97. Ray was taken on as a student by Michael Cardew way back in 1935 and worked at Winchcombe for the rest of his life. He was a inspiration to potters and collectors alike.
I met Ray on a few occasions, I remember once showing him an old Winchcombe slipware mug, he confirmed it as his and reminisced about his old slipware days, I will always treasure that memory.
