Melis van der Sluis

Post  mumof1 on Mon 20 May - 16:25

I have collected quite an amount of pottery over the last few weeks, some with marks I know, and some I don't, so will be asking if anyone knows them soon, but this one I do know

Melis has been potting full-time for around 40+ years, and was a teacher at St Paul's Collegiate in Hamilton for 6 years, qualified in art and PE. He is originally from the Netherlands and has many feathers in his cap, see http://nz.linkedin.com/pub/melis-van-der-sluis/1b/92b/33b and also from the Waikato Museum http://www.waikatomuseum.co.nz/news/pageid/2145843392 Ah, an artist in love with the clay and the surrounds from which it was derived - how romantic that writing is!

Vandersluis Pottery mug

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sat 16 Jan - 12:33

Mug, Vandersluis Pottery.
From Whangarei Hospice shop.


A slight variation on the mark.
I didn't even see the mark under the fluorescent lights when I picked it up.
Nice surprise.

Can anyone give me an idea of age here?
