I was very lucky today, I went to the Motueka market, and there I met Nina Davis. What a lovely lady (with well known parents), and just had to share a photo of her lovely wares. I have to say I was most impressed with the glazes, especially the ones on the right - such magnificent rainbow colours!

Those glazes remind me of stoneware colours, though the clay doesn't look like stoneware .... ? The first bowl in the topic looks like it has a chun glaze on it ....?

All the pottery pieces have a pale grey coloured base Ev, as seen in the two stamp photos. Does that help?

Pale grey is a stoneware clay colour - thanks sunny.
There are not many potters using stoneware clay now, as it's so expensive to fire.
The high temperatures turn out some really magic glazes and it's great to see someone still firing high Very Happy

I chatted with Nina again last weekend, and she confirmed, definitely stoneware. She said she fires as high as her 'poor old kiln will go'.

Kat, I think the terracotta dish was actually made by Christopher Vine who used to live in Teal Valley, Nelson.
Teal Valley is also the location for another well-known NZ potter, Maxine Waters.
Nina Davis regularly hosted the British potter, Ray Finch, of Winchcombe Pottery and she was trained there under Michael Cardew, I believe.

Would this be the same Christopher Vine who did decorations for Temuka and other pottery mainly Australian.

No, not the Australian Christopher Vine. The Nelson Christopher Vine was potting in Teal Valley in the 70s and 80s, mainly. You don't see much of his work, but he created a wonderful tiled wall mural at the Nelson Provincial Museum which depicts all of the historic buildings that have been demolished in Nelson. It's worth going to the museum to see that alone.
