Glazed Earthenware vase incised “Gravelle – Dawson Creek”, ht 9-1/2″ – coll.#131
Some time ago I researched this pottery vase and discovered that “Gravelle” was the surname of a teacher who worked in Northern British Columbia and gave classes in pottery making.
I believe she also may have taught in the Prince Rupert school district, as I recall seeing other “Gravelle” pots with the Prince Rupert location incised.
Unfortunately, I cannot locate the source documents to support my research – if anyone has more information on “Gravelle” please contact me or leave a comment below.
update: I located another Gravelle vase today that was signed “M. Gravelle” and dated 1968, so I’m adding the M.initial to the listing. (Nov 8th 2018)
