I think I have got this right, I originally thought it was Paul Laird, but certain it is Christopher Clouston from Hokitika now.  sunny

A mug made by Christopher Clouston which is interesting as it looks like a decal was made specifically for these mugs ....

Bought this gorgeous wee goblet today, it is just beautifully made and jumped out at me. Was very happy to pay $2 for it!

Heavily reduced iron oxide decoration with speckles in the clay = fantastic!

It has a lovely deep bowl to it, I love this style of un-footed (for lack of a better description) goblet. 

I've looked up a few examples of his work, and have to say, what a talented potter he is, has a real touch with the glazes!

Hi I am new to this forum. I bought a vase with a lid by CP Clouston but am unable to find any information about this artist or his work.
Can anyone help me find out more. Thank you, Jacque.

I don't know very much about Christopher Clouston, but I often see his work listed on TradeMe. His stylised tree decoration is unique and stands out. Check out the pieces on this search on google -

It's a dinky sized cheese bell ...



His stamp has been filled with a peculiar pink stain ...?

I saw three pieces today at Red Cross (or is it St Johns?) Kaiwaka that looked like CPC's designs but they appeared to be painted rather than glazed and on pinkish-bodied castware.

Any thoughts?

Also I bought two of four (the other two are cracked) Clouston mugs at Hospice yesterday. They have a similar design to Cat-a-lat's wine sip above. They are tightly wasted like my Simon Engelhard mug, making them look very 1960s. I am very pleased with them; they are quite unlike what I have seen before.
Marked as in the gallery.

Will you just look at this gorgeous gravy / sauce boat? The shape, the colours, that tree. Minute damage to the bottom of the spout, but apart from that in pristine shape. The mark isn't too clear, but it certainly is Christopher:

I don't know about the castware, but I picked up a matching two mugs to yours just the other week! Can't remember whether it was on a Wellington jaunt or here in Palmy, but I am also rather well pleased! Curious to see your Engelhard mug, have you posted it here?

Browsing the shelves of cheap plates at the OP shop, noticed 2 bowls with the Creek Pottery stickers, didn't really look at the potter's mark. Bought them both, just because. Washed them, looked at the mark more closely, thought "That looks like Clouston! Surely that can't be." So I checked here and yes, I was right:
