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 didn't need this, but fell in love with it when I saw it and had to have it :cloud7:
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.
