Is this pattern Laguna d434 designed by Dorothy Thorpe for Crown Lynn?

Post  Ev on Tue 8 Nov - 11:02

From Billy Apple's collection in the Crown Lynn: Pottery for the People Exhibition at the Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland.



Can someone please confirm that this is indeed Laguna ?
Edits:
I've just found Santa Barbara in Val Monk's book and it looks the same as the photo above ...
I thought that Santa Barbara was that vivid yellow pattern and we already have that in the Gallery!
So what does Laguna look like ....? Obviously I don't know my Dot Thorpe Razz

Laguna

I don't know what laguna looks like but have these pics of a cup and jug lifted from trademe, it seems to be a violet shade.
Similarly lifted, a pic of a Santa Barbara cup, I love it and would dearly love one myself!

Billy Apple had Laguna in his collection at the Exhibition ...
The photo I first put on matches your pattern Marl, but the colours are not the same.
The notes from the Wellington Exhibition say Laguna (pale lavender and pale green).
I must note what the notes say for Santa Barbara (pink and gold; primrose and bold yellow).
Perhaps I didn't get a pic, though I have Santa Barbara, Monterrey and Brocade.
Hopefully mrnarna has a pic of it! This is driving me nuts as the www has nothing that I could find.
I may have to go back to the Exhibition to nut this one out ...... heheee it will be a good excuse Wink
Perhaps I should add my pic to the Santa Barbara topic?

Thank you - I've put one cup in the Patterns Gallery until we have a photo of the pattern.
