Various pots from my mum's collection

Post  Cat-a-lat on Sat 21 Apr - 22:51

I finally got around to photographing some of my mum's collection to share and also in the hopes that we can identify a couple of unknowns.

This bowl was commissioned (for lack of a better word) for my mum for her 21st birthday by her best friend, who watched the potter throw it and talked to the potter about the sort of patterns that my mum liked. Unfortunately the name of the potter has slipped from memory, mum was at Ardmore at the time though.


and the mark


next is a lidded large jar or urn I guess you'd call it :-)



and unfortunately not the clearest of marks


Next is a vase


and the mark


A couple of pots from my uncle, John Ferguson




and his marks



Mum's flax and tui vase - I think the name is Marden underneath



and the mark


A lidded dish given to mum when she was teaching in Feilding by a potter by the last name of Southcombe



and the mark


and finally, just for fun, one by me when I was 16 ;-)



Apologies for giving you so much to digest all at once!

Re the 21st present: There is a similar mark in the Potters Marks book by Rhonda Edwards, as it has the back to front E and the R coming off it .... it doesn't have the bit that looks like a small b though. Check with your Mum though.

No ideas for the next two pieces sorry ...

Bravo Uncle cheers

I adore Marden's work ... whoever they are and am pleased to see their mark in the Gallery. Thank you!!

The name Southcombe is unfamiliar to me, but I like their style Very Happy

Awww thanks for sharing your piece cat

Thanks Ev, it's great to see my uncle's mark up in the gallery - there are probably a few pieces of his floating about in the Manawatu area, he's a very talented artist/craftsman in a variety of fields, though he no longer pots.

I love seeing the potter's marks gallery expanding, especially when I've helped! :-)
