As this Exhibition will be a modified version of the Crown Lynn: Crockery of Distinction display that was held in Wellington, the organisers are looking for a new title for the Exhibition. Please add any suggestions to the Crown Lynn Crockery of Distinction page on Facebook.

I've seen the gallery's press release and flyer for the exhibition - they don't do marketing until two weeks before openings - they've dumped the "strawberry vomit" and have less room for Richard's stuff so have had to edit that from the City Gallery Wellington show - the Shufflebottom/Parker stuff is in, the Smisek stuff, the colour glaze, the Thorpe designs and the fiesta ware - all the usual suspects - Amalgamated supplied the bricks for the building so that's featured too

I hear from a reliable source that the Gus Fisher Gallery sends out invitations two weeks before the opening. The official opening will be on the evening of Friday November 4th so presumably invites will be sent out this Friday - I believe the gallery does them by email as well as post.

PS On Friday at 5.30pm there is an official opening with mercifully brief speeches about 6pm. There's a longer rolling public opening on Saturday and floor talks by me at 1pm and Trish Clark at 2pm. From what I've seen on Youtube Trish's will be informative, amusing and too short and mine hopefully not too much the opposite.

Re: Crown Lynn Exhibition at the Gus Fisher Gallery Auckland

Post  TonyK on Sat 5 Nov - 6:57

The opening was a lot of fun - I got to speak to Alan Topham who told me some interesting Dorothy Thorpe stories. It was great seeing a few of Richard's pieces given the respect he and they deserved for so long. Amusing too to hear that the original proposal from Paula Savage was for the City Gallery and the Auckland Museum to co-curate the exhibition but the museum ruled this out as not "sexy" enough for them.

The City Gallery went it alone and when Linda Tyler heard of the show she arranged to fit it into the Gus Fisher programme. I kept hearing that it worked or looked better as an exhibition in Auckland.

PS Now I've just got to get this damned floor talk done and I can relax.

Floor talks today by Tony Carr and Trish Clark Very Happy
First time in yonks that I've been to a Gallery where photos are permitted ....
I took many - Carpay - Wharetana - Bohemia ware - camera wouldn't pick up the Shufflebotham pieces darn it! I will load them into the appropriate Categories and Galleries over the next few days. I will mention the Gus Fisher Gallery and Crown Lynn: Pottery for the People Exhibition each time and hope this covers all angles. Can already think of many more photos that I should have taken too !!

Awesome narna :narna: as taking pics through glass doesn't always work. I can't use many of the Wharetana pics. Did you meet John Parker the studio potter who makes and collects the Shufflebotham whiteware? What about the antique dealer Brian Ronson who collected the Carpay and Whiteware? Or Richard Quinn's lovely daughters and wife? I know you got to meet Manos though Smile You would have seen them all there though. I'm still buzzing as well .... the enormity of it all will take a while to sink in bounce

Floor talk on Saturday 19th November by artist Lisa Reihana and curator Andrew Clifford discussing the cultural implications of Crown Lynn's Wharetana Ware.

Wish I could go to this but I've had too much time off work as it is lately.
I wonder if they have had an opportunity to view the Wharetana Maori Art Pottery Catalogue with it's highly respectful descriptions of the meanings of the carvings on each piece listed, which I feel empowers and promotes Maoridom?

Billy Apples Dorothy Thorpe Collection.



Mary Morrison with her collection


The hand-painted Fiesta Ware range was adorned with brightly coloured spots and
stripes. Because the paint was applied over the top of the glaze, many examples from
this range are damaged. In addition to the full dinner set, the Fiesta range also included
condiment sets and bowls. Produced during the late 1950s and into the 1960s, the Fiesta
range, like many others made by Crown Lynn at this time, was part-imitation and part-emulation
of international designs. Fiesta was a hugely successful dinnerware range in
America following the war and was also made in Britain by the Johnson Brothers and J&G
Meakin. Featuring a delightful yet simple design of bright dots of colour against a cross
hatched cream and silvery grey ground, it marked a break from the plain colours of
Crown Lynn's earlier dinner ware.
Mary Morrison owns several sets of Fiesta, some of which is still used on a daily basis.
Her collection of Fiesta ware is displayed on the original wire racks that formed a central
part of Crown Lynn's marketing campaign. Also on display is a rare document from
Morrison's collection that was sourced from the Crown Lynn factory, which details the
transition of the Fiesta range from an international design to a domestic product. The
card template, which is complete with a fine ceramic dust, was hung on the walls of the
factory to detail for the decorators where each coloured dot should be placed.

THE RICHARD QUINN COLLECTION
The diversity of pieces In the Richard Quinn Collection testifies to the trans-formative
history of Crown Lynn over the five decades of its existence, during which time It grew to
be the largest producer of pottery In the Southern Hemisphere. It Is a unique historical
collection that documents many of the origins, process and products of the Crown Lynn
factory. As well as the finished pieces, the collection also Includes objects that relate to
the manual production of such items in moulds, ram presses, decorating stands and a
number of stamps that would have been used for hand labeling, all of which were
personally rescued by Quinn after the factory closed in 1989.
The collection details an assortment of early objects from the late 1930s that point to
the humble origins of the company when It was trading as Ambrico. items such as the
handle less cup, the cup With a block handle and the tawny coloured Paris Ware, which
was the first set of dinner ware produced by Ambrico In c.1943 and traces the amateur
beglnnings of the company.
