Peter Lange

Post  Ev on Mon 27 Aug - 12:08

I've desired a piece made by Peter Lange for years and finally found a mug at kiwialan's stall at the Antiques Fair cheers
It isn't signed, but it's easy to see that Peter made it.

We need a bit more Peter Lange don't we!

Here's two.

This trademe purchase arrived today. I'm very happy with it.


The body is very white and looks like a porcelain clay to me.
Light shines through it.

And here's a more recent one that I got from Marcus a few months ago.

.


I'll add measurements later.

Great stuff Jeremy! I was watching the Mt Eden mug as I think it is great.
Not sure if it's porcelain though, as white earthenware is easier to control.

It was a surprise to me but first thing I noticed looking at the base was that it looked like porcelain, so, as I noted above, I did the light test and it positively glowed.

Even holding it to the bedhead light I can see the silhouette of my fingers through it.

two more Lange mugs

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Mon 8 Feb - 16:23

Two more Peter Lange mugs.

The salt- or soda-glazed mug with the red copper accents is a tm buy. I think it was made within the last decade. I certainly didn't need this but of course I did want it.
Hand-scratched Lange mark, stoneware.


The black mug with coloured deco revealed beneath is a few decades old. I had not seen this work until Marcus pulled it out on Sunday so I was pleased that I correctly identified the handle as Peter's work. I am slowly learning. This one is unmarked for maker and from look and sound appears to me to be earthenware.


With two from Marcus, two from tm and one from Kat & Co. I now have five Lange mugs.

Very jealous as I love his work ..... alien
I saw Peter's collection a few years ago and saw the brightly painted ware that he made.

castware mug and thrown pot with lid

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sat 16 Jul - 15:53

You never know what's going to turn up in the opshops.

Peter Lange castware mug

This was certainly a surprise.
This cast coffee or soup mug appeared to me to have the same deco as the Peter Lange mug that I got from Marcus (above, and top right below). I went back to the car to check on the iPad and sure enough it looks like the same hand at work.

I knew that Lange had used casting techniques for some of his art pieces but had no notion of his using the same for table ware.
